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 tell the whole story regarding low frequency exposure limits, specifically recognition of the work of Read more [...]

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 that includes the pesticide DDT and gasoline engine exhaust, and even caffine Read more [...]

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 National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), “invisible lines of force associated with the Read more [...]
