Biological and Medical Aspects of Electromagnetic Fields examines potential health hazards, exposure standards, and medical applications of electromagnetic (EM) fields.

The second volume in the bestselling and newly revisedHandbook of Biological Effects of Electromagnetic Fields, Third Edition, this book draws from the latest studies on the effects of exposure to electric and magnetic fields. In addition to extensive reviews of physiological effects, the book contains now separate reviews of behavioral and cognitive responses to various exposures. The book also describes an approach to setting standards for exposure limits and explores a few of the beneficial uses of EM fields in medical applications, both diagnostics and in treatment.

Biological and Medical Aspects of Electromagnetic Fields provides a practical overview of the experiments and methods used to observe ELF and RF fields and the possible useful and hazardous implications of these observations.

For those of us concerned about toxicity and health threats from an unregulated excess of disparate types and sources of electromagnetic radiation to humans and other life, this is the metaphorical bible, the truth in detail.
Unfortunately even here a trend is detectable where the big boys with gigantic funding, hired gunslinger scientists and enormous resources can be seen promoting studies, in quantity if not quality, which play down the health effects over the last few years.
We trust the editors are up to the task of eliminating this bias.
