Abstract:

This report analyzes selected articles on the biological effects of electromagnetic radiation. To date, four reports embodying detailed critical reviews of 160 published papers have been issued. RFR is used as a generic term to include all other designations in the literature for electromagnetic fields at frequencies up to 300 GHz. However, analysis of papers on the effects of associated with the high electric and magnetic fields produced by high-voltage power-transmission lines is outside the scope of this paper. This paper will discuss only a few major topics, which were selected as being of most significance with regard to possible hazards of RFR to the public at large. These topics include Epidemiology Mutagenesis, Carcinogenesis, and Cytogenetic Effects Teratogenesis and Developmental Abnormalities Nervous System - RFR Hearing Effect, Calcium Efflux Blood-Brain-Barrier Effects Histopathology and Histochemistry of the Central Nervous System EEG Studies.
