Ross Adey Pettis Memorial VA Medical Center and University School of Medicine, Loma Linda, California Abstract Life on earth has evolved in a sea of natural electromagnetic (EM) fields. Over the past century, this. A large body of literature exists on the response of tissues to electromagnetic fields, primarily in the extremely-low-frequency (ELF) and microwave-frequency ranges. In general, the reported effects of radiofrequency (RF) radiation on tissue and organ systems have been attributed to thermal interactions, although the existence of nonthermal effects at low field intensities is still a subject.

(U) The effects of radiowaves and microwaves em bigica1 systems have traditionally been separated iDto two basic classificatioas, (1) thermal effects, and (2) Dontherma1 effects. The thermal effects are vide1y rec-. ogn1zed and the mechanism of action reasouab1y well understoo4. Noatherma1File Size: 2MB. Biological effects of electromagnetic fields are the complex function of numerous parameters. The dependence on waveform, frequency and medium parameter like dielectric constant or conductivity is Author: Charles Polk.

Biological Effects of Exposure to Radiation Radiation can harm either the whole body (somatic damage) or eggs and sperm (genetic damage). Its effects are more pronounced in cells that reproduce rapidly, such as the stomach lining, hair follicles, bone marrow, and : OpenStax.
