Non-ionizing radiation

Nowadays, exposure to non-ionizing radiation is unavoidable in our everyday environment. For example, electricity use results in extremely low frequency electromagnetic fields (EMF), wireless communication produces radio-frequency EMF. Both types of non-ionizing radiation are suspected to impair human health. EPH researchers conduct epidemiological studies, including personal measurements, and regularly review related international literature (ELMAR). We address a variety of potential health consequences, ranging from tumours to sleep disturbances. The possible biological pathways of non-ionizing radiation are elucidated by means of bioinformatics.
