Impact of EMF Exposure Limits and MRI

Impact of EMF Exposure Limits and MRI

Articles, by Professor J.C. Lin of the University of Illinois in Chicago, highlighting ICNIRP’s role in establishing limits for EMF exposure during MRI procedures were published in IEEE periodicals Microwave Magazine, vol. 12, no. 4, pp. 46-56, June 2011, and in Antennas and Propagation Magazine, vol. 53, no. 1, pp. 169-174, Feb.2011.  The articles provide useful information but do not…

Are Cellphones really dangerous?

Are Cellphones really dangerous?

The declaration from International Agency for Research on Cancer that cellphone emissions are possibly carcinogenic is not only old "news" but it is not scientifically substantiated.  The conclusion IARC reached was based on a review of a set of published articles evaluating the effects of electromagnetic emissions on biological cells or animals.  Their classification would put cellphones in the category…

RESEARCHERS MISLEADING PUBLIC ON RISKS OF EMF

RESEARCHERS MISLEADING PUBLIC ON RISKS OF EMF

In a statement issued on 2 June 2010, the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) has released an updated position statement concluding overall that "the balance of scientific evidence to date still does not indicate that harmful effects occur in humans due to low-level exposure to EMFs."  EMF stands for Electric and Magnetic Fields, which are, as described by the…

NEMA Addresses SSL Dimming Challenges

NEMA Addresses SSL Dimming Challenges

The NEMA Lighting Controls and Solid State Lighting Sections have co-produced a white paper on the subject of dimming screw-base integrated ballast LED lamps. It is designated LSD-49 and is titled "Solid State Lighting for Incandescent Replacement—Best Practices for Dimming". NEMA and the SSL industry hope that by issuing guidance as early as possible on this subject, SSL technology can…

Mooove Over Health Concerns, Power Lines Affect Milking Cows

In a "hot off the presses" article, "Of Cows and Power Lines" in the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers "Spectrum" magazine, the reporter states researchers have found a link between which direction cows face and the presence of power lines over or near the feeding grounds.  There is no obvious reason why this should be considered critical information for cattle ranchers and dairy…

"Wireless Waves Harmless" – 1909 Marconi Statement

"Wireless Waves Harmless" – 1909 Marconi Statement

As noted in the article titled the same as this post, noted scientists, inventors and engineers have come to the same conclusion – that Electromagnetic Fields are safe.  Given the ability of microwave emissions from high power radar to fry something in its path, that is not always absolutely true but the article – "The Conceits of Setting EMF Standards:…
