Can wired floor heating cause EMF issues?

I am considering floor heating for my bathroom remodel even for my first floor kitchen and family room. I now have gas forced hot air heating.

For electrical wires under the floor, I have concerns on EMF. But for hot water pipes under the floor, then leaking is my concern.

Please advise.
