Abstract

The Radio-frequency electromagnetic(RFEM) spectrum is defined as waves that range in frequency from>0 to $3{\times}1012Hz$. Although there are several thousands of reports that present data or opinion of the biological response to RFEM radiation, no consensus has emerged regarding thresholds and mechanisms of injury. This review presents a overview of the subject on mechanisms of interaction of RFEM fields with tissue, chromosomal and mutagenic effect. carcinogenic effects. The scope of the review is expanded to include systemic effects such as those on reproduction, growth, and development, hematological effects. Some biological end points, those with associated with behavior and cataractogenesis is discussed.
