Organic and clinical points of Electromagnetic Fields examines strength overall healthiness dangers, publicity criteria, and scientific functions of electromagnetic (EM) fields.
The moment quantity within the bestselling and newly revisedHandbook of organic results of Electromagnetic Fields, 3rd version, this publication attracts from the newest stories at the results of publicity to electrical and magnetic fields. as well as wide stories of physiological results, the ebook comprises now separate reports of behavioral and cognitive responses to varied exposures. The booklet additionally describes an method of surroundings criteria for publicity limits and explores some of the helpful makes use of of EM fields in scientific functions, either diagnostics and in treatment.
Biological and scientific points of Electromagnetic Fields offers a pragmatic assessment of the experiments and strategies used to monitor ELF and RF fields and the prospective important and unsafe implications of those observations.
