The study of human exposure to radiofrequencymicrowave RFMW radiation has been the subject of widespread investigation and analysis. It is known that electromagnetic radiation has a biological effect on human tissue. An attempt has been made by researchers to quantify the effects of radiation exposure on the human body and to set guidelines for safe exposure levels. A review of the pertinent findings is presented along with the American National Standards Institute ANSI recommended safety standard and the United States Air Force permissible exposure limit for RFMW radiation. An overview of research conducted in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe is also included in this report.
