Abstract:

Electromagnetic radio-frequency fields and x-rays have a harmful effect on the human organism. Since they are invisible and their effects are not detected by the sense organs, a very carelessATTITUDE ON THE PART OF WORKERS TO THE DANGERS OF RADIATION AND AN UNDERESTIMATION OF ITS HARMFUL EFFECTS ON THE BODY IS OBSERVED. Information concerning the effects of radio waves on man and the precautionary measures against radiation by radio waves and soft x-rays is fragmentary and uncoordinated. An attempt has been made in this booklet to summarize this information and to present basic recommendations to ensure safe working conditions when dealing with radio-frequency generator installations.
