    THE BIOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF ELECTROMAGNETIC F IELDS ON. Power lines carrying high-voltage electricity ar e ubiquitous in the strength of the electric and magnetic fields . Published Scientific Research on 5G, 4G Small Cells, Wireless Radiation and Health. Published peer reviewed science already indicates that the current wireless technologies of 2G, 3G and 4G – in use today with our cell phones, computers and wearable tech – creates (create) radiofrequency exposures which poses (pose) a serious health risk to humans, animals and the environment. Scientists.

      The literature on biological effects of magnetic and electromagnetic fields commonly utilized in magnetic resonance imaging systems is surveyed here. After an introduction on the basic principles of magnetic resonance imaging and the electric and magnetic properties of biological tissues, the basic phenomena to understand the bio-effects are described in classical terms. Point Sources: Anything that runs electricity, including all electrical appliances are sources of magnetic fields. However, for most point sources, the strength decreases quickly with the square of the distance (see Distance Matters).After 1 meter from typical appliances, levels are generally within limits thought to be acceptable, but conversely, levels within 1 foot of the source could be high.

    However, the many laboratory studies of human exposure to ELF fields have not identified any deleterious acute effects, although data on chronic exposure are lacking. Studies demonstrating bone growth induced by kilohertz fields are interesting, but there is no evidence of effects of such exposures on healthy tissues. [ citation needed ] One such interaction is absorption of energy from the fields, which can cause tissue to heat up; more intense fields will produce greater heating. This can lead to biological effects ranging from muscle relaxation (as produced by a diathermy device) to burns.

Radiofrequency electromagnetic fields are absorbed by the body and may subsequently provoke various effects. The strength of the energy absorption depends on the strength and the frequency of the electromagnetic fields, but also on the properties and structures of the biological tissue.; Forces and heating due to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields are clearly proven and physically defined.

Abstract. The possible effects of magnetic fields on neural functioning and human behavior have been much discussed since the time of Mesmer. Only within recent years, however, has this problem been subjected to appropriate experimentation, and at this writing there would appear to be little doubt that some interaction exists between central nervous system (CNS) function and external magnetic Cited by: Bioelectricity refers to the generation or action of electric currents or voltages in biological processes.
