That isn't even close to true.
Our nervous system and heart both produce electromagnetic energy as a result of their normal day-to-day functioning. In fact, most metabolic processes produce some form of electromagnetic energy. When put under pressure (such as being squeezed during a muscular contraction) our bones produce small amounts of electricity - this is called the piezoelectric effect.
These bioelectromagnetic fields are easily detectable.
Electroencephalography (EEG, or the study of the electromagnetic field emitted by the brain via scalp sensors), Electrocardiography (ECG, or the study of the electrical activity of the heart via sensors placed on the skin near the heart), and Electromyography (EMG, or the study of electrical activity produced by skeletal muscles) would not exist if this weren't true.
It's one thing to say that human beings don't produce/will never be capable of producing enough electromagnetic energy to physically move another human being....BUT it is pretty ignorant to state we simply don't produce an EM Field - because it has long be an established scientific fact that we do.
