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!

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.

This reference explores the sources, characteristics, bioeffects, and health hazards of extremely low-frequency (ELF) fields and radio frequency radiation (RFR), analyzing current research as well as the latest epidemiological studies to assess potential risks associated with exposure and to develop effective safety guidelines. Compiles reports and investigations from four decades of study on the effect of nonionizing electromagnetic fields and radiation on human health Summarizing modern engineering approaches to control exposure, Electromagnetic Fields and Radiation discusses: EM interaction mechanisms in biological systems Explorations into the impact of EM fields on free radicals, cells, tissues, organs, whole organisms, and the population Regulatory standards in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia Pacific Evaluation of incident fields from various EM sources Measurement surveys for various sites including power lines, substations, mobile systems, cellular base stations, broadcast antennas, traffic radar devices, heating equipment, and other sources Dosimetry techniques for the determination of internal EM fields Conclusions reached by the Food and Drug Administration, World Health Organization, and other institutions

Written at the request of the U.S. Air Force and Congress, this book evaluates the potential health effects associated with deployment of the Ground Wave Emergency Network (GWEN), a communications system to be used in case of a high-altitude detonation of a nuclear device. The committee, composed of experts in biophysics, physics, risk assessment, epidemiology, and cancer, examines data from laboratory and epidemiologic studies of effects from electromagnetic fields to determine the likelihood of health effects being caused by the operation of a fully implemented GWEN system.
