Sinopsis:

Health Effects of Cell Phone Radiation will offer a concentrated and up-to-date overview on the effects of radio frequencies on human tissue. While significant advances are being made on many fronts, ranging in frequency from quasi-static to the optical regime, a special emphasis of this volume is on current understanding of biological interactions of cellular mobile communication radiation. The use of cell-phones has experienced phenomenal growth - some estimate that there will be more than 3.5 billion users of these wireless devices by the end of 2010, worldwide.

The widespread impact of these new wireless technologies has raised concerns about the safety of human exposure to radio-frequency (RF) energy emitted by these telecommunication devices. A better understanding of the biological effects of RF electromagnetic field is needed to safeguard against possible harm to the general population. Fortunately in recent years there has been a resurgence of research interest in achieving a quantitative understanding of the relationships between the biological effects of RF radiation and the physical variables that may cause them. A significant number of results have and are beginning to appear in the literature. This volume reviews and assesses the biological effects of exposure to electromagnetic fields from wireless communication technology.

From the Back Cover:

The popularity and rapid deployment of wireless communication technology has led to increasing numbers of new devices and systems that emit RF electromagnetic energy. It has resulted in large numbers of individuals at the workplace or in the general public being exposed to RF fields. At the current rate of growth more of the world’s population will have access to mobile phone services than to electricity. In most cases, the RF sources are in close proximity to the human body. The increased exposures at the workplace or in daily life have prompted the need for further research to evaluate RF safety and health implications.

However, exposure to RF electromagnetic fields is not limited to mobile or wireless communication; widespread applications of RF and microwave energy are found in RF article identification and surveillance, on-body sensing and interrogation, novel active and passive security and detection technology, and proposed digital living network applications. Given the technological, regulatory and marketing challenges, the timing of the introduction or deployment of many new applications is somewhat uncertain. It should be noted that the experience of the cellular mobile telephone industry indicates that once new technology is deployed, the adoption rate can easily explode.

There is a real need for reliable scientific answers on health effects associated with exposures resulting from widespread use of RF electromagnetic fields in new and existing technology and devices.

Advances in Electromagnetic Fields in Living Systems; Volume 5, Health Effects of Cell Phone Radiation presents chapters written by scientists, who have made major contributionsto this area of research. Topics include:

  • Cellular Biology Aspects
  • Carcinogenic Potential
  • Epidemiological Studies
  • Cognitive Effects
  • Hypersensitivity
  • Occupational Exposure
  • Dosimetry and Induced Temperature
