A good number of misconceptions are currently circulating on the effects of non-ionizing radiations on our health, which can lead to an oversimplification of the issue, to potentially dangerous assumptions or to misleading data analysis. Health effects may be exaggerated, or on the contrary underplayed. The authors of this work (doctors, engineers and researchers) have endeavored to supply validated and easily understandable scientific information on the electromagnetic fields and their biological and health effects. After a general review of the physics of the waves and a presentation of non-ionizing radiations, the authors review the main emission sources encountered in our daily environment. They summarize simply but as accurately as possible the current knowledge on their biological effects. The safety limits recommended by international organizations are presented for the different frequency ranges. This book is intended for doctors, teachers, scientists, students, policy makers and anyone else interested in a deeper understanding of the health effects of electromagnetic fields. Intended to serve a broad readership, everyone will approach it according to their respective level of curiosity and knowledge. It is neither an exhaustive inventory of all the studies made to date, nor a survey text focusing only on some chosen studies. Nor is the objective to present all the sources of non-ionizing radiations. Interested readers will be given the opportunity to broaden their knowledge, also by consulting the selected bibliography presented by the authors at the end of each chapter.
This book brings you cutting-edge discussions of exposure limits, monitoring instrumentation, new measurements required by human exposure standards, induced currents and contact currents, and the latest data on biological effects.

Our modern technologies are bombarding us with electromagnetic fields (EMFs) now more than ever. Are EMFs really harmful and if so, to what degree? Are all EMFs bad? The EMF controversy has now pitted scientists, action groups and the technology industry into rigid corners. In "Electromagnetic Health," the author clearly and objectively presents the evidence and latest research from a perspective that embraces both the scientific and natural health communities. The entire spectrum of electromagnetic radiation is thoroughly examined, from modern technologies to nature s sources. More importantly, the information provided in "Electromagnetic Health" invokes an entirely new and engaging perspective one that may just change the EMF conversation completely."

Biological and Medical Aspects of Electromagnetic Fields examines potential health hazards, exposure standards, and medical applications of electromagnetic (EM) fields. The second volume in the bestselling and newly revisedHandbook of Biological Effects of Electromagnetic Fields, Third Edition, this book draws from the latest studies on the effects of exposure to electric and magnetic fields. In addition to extensive reviews of physiological effects, the book contains now separate reviews of behavioral and cognitive responses to various exposures. The book also describes an approach to setting standards for exposure limits and explores a few of the beneficial uses of EM fields in medical applications, both diagnostics and in treatment. Biological and Medical Aspects of Electromagnetic Fields provides a practical overview of the experiments and methods used to observe ELF and RF fields and the possible useful and hazardous implications of these observations.
Public concern over possible health effects from electromagnetic fields (EMF) has led to the preparation of this handbook.

Public concern over possible health effects from electromagnetic fields (EMF) has led to the preparation of this handbook. Potential risks of EMF exposure from facilities such as power lines or mobile phone base stations present a difficult set of challenges for decision-makers. The challenges include determining if there is a hazard from EMF exposure and what the potential health impact is. Responding to these challenges requires the involvement of individuals or organizations with the right set of competencies combining relevant scientific expertise strong communication skills and good judgement in the management and regulatory areas. This handbook is intended to support decision-makers faced with a combination of public controversy scientific uncertainty and the need to operate existing facilities and/or the requirement to site new facilities appropriately. Its goal is to improve the decision-making process by reducing misunderstandings and improving trust through better dialogue. The guide may assist the general public when interacting with government agencies that regulate environmental health and with companies whose facilities may be sources of concern. References and suggestions for further reading are included.

Health Effects of Cell Phone Radiation will offer a concentrated and up-to-date overview on the effects of radio frequencies on human tissue. While significant advances are being made on many fronts, ranging in frequency from quasi-static to the optical regime, a special emphasis of this volume is on current understanding of biological interactions of cellular mobile communication radiation. The use of cell-phones has experienced phenomenal growth - some estimate that there will be more than 3.5 billion users of these wireless devices by the end of 2010, worldwide. The widespread impact of these new wireless technologies has raised concerns about the safety of human exposure to radio-frequency (RF) energy emitted by these telecommunication devices. A better understanding of the biological effects of RF electromagnetic field is needed to safeguard against possible harm to the general population. Fortunately in recent years there has been a resurgence of research interest in achieving a quantitative understanding of the relationships between the biological effects of RF radiation and the physical variables that may cause them. A significant number of results have and are beginning to appear in the literature. This volume reviews and assesses the biological effects of exposure to electromagnetic fields from wireless communication technology.

We are under continual attack from electromagnetic fields (EMFs) radiating from power lines, household wiring, microwave ovens, computers, televisions, clock radios, cellular phones, electric blankets, and other appliances. Researchers have correlated electropollution with increases in cancer, birth defects, depression, learning disabilities, chronic fatigue syndrome, Alzheimer’s disease, and sudden infant death syndrome. The danger is real and with increasing use of electricity in our environment it is one of the reasons why many scientists believe some disease rates are on the rise. EMFs are not blocked or weakened by trees, walls, buildings, or other structures. Like X-rays, they pass through these objects and into our bodies—disrupting normal cellular function and biological processes. Our greatest exposure to EMFs come from within our home and offices. All household and office appliances emit EMFs. But you cannot tell which are most dangerous by their size or function. Often the small devices like electric can openers and hair dryers are much more dangerous than the larger ones such as electric ovens or refrigerators. In this book you will find out: • About the dangers you face with EMF exposure • Why certain diseases persist in spite of medical treatment • If microwave ovens are safe or not • What home appliances are the most dangerous • Where we get the most exposure • How to find hidden EMF “hot spots” in our homes This book offers practical ways to protect yourself in your home and office from that effects of electromagnetic radiation. You will learn how to take simple precautionary steps to reduce EMF exposure by as much as 90 percent and virtually eliminate the threat of electropollution on your health. If you use electricity, you need this book!

Thus, epidemiological studies suggest that children living near electric power lines have an increased risk of leukemia, and clinical studies show that low-energy, pulsed EMFs accelerate healing of bone fractures. The mechanisms underlying these effects are not yet understood, but in vitro studies show that low-energy EMFs induce changes in protein syntheses that are similar to the stress response found normally in all cells. This 26-chapter book provides a comprehensive survey of the multifaceted issues raised by environmental EMFs by looking at physical and biological fundamentals of EMFs, health risks and benefits of exposure, and biophysical and biochemical mechanisms of interaction.
