About this book

This book covers the subject of Biological Effects of EMF in its entirety. First it covers both high and low frequency effects, explains thoroughly the mechanisms of interaction between EMF and biological systems and provides the necessary mathematical modeling for EMF absorption. Experimental verification of the theoretical results is given when at all possible and it is expected to open new areas of research as well as provide the material for university course creation. Topics as Ion Cyclotron Resonance in biological systems, thermal and dissipation effects of mobile system radiation, effects of transmission lines and railway radiation, effects on the reproductive capacity of specific insects, on the immune systems on embryos and fetuses, blood parameters and behavior of rats, as well as health risk assessment and the therapeutic effects of EMF are thoroughly covered.

Contents

Introduction.- Mechanisms of Interaction between EMF and Biological Systems.- Mathematical Modeling of Biological Systems Suitable for Studying EMF Effects.- Modeling EMF Sources.- Assessment of Various Exposure Conditions which Involve Biological Systems.- Application to Modern Activities and Services which Involve EMF Exposures.- Case Study on Mobile Systems.- Safety Parameter Levels as they Apply to Health Safety Standards.- Therapeutic Effects of EMF: Models, Mechanisms of Interaction.- Pilot Projects.

Media reviews

From the reviews: "This text brings together a series of examinations regarding the effects of electromagnetic fields, with particular reference to mechanism, modelling, biological effects, therapeutic effects, international standards and exposure criteria. ! it constitutes a valid point of reference for both students and those who wish to expand their knowledge of the effects of electromagnetic fields. The wealth of illustrative material and the clear presentation of the themes make this book accessible to all those working in biological fields." (Enrico Rinaldelli, Advances in Horticultural Science, Issue 4, 2006)
