By Riadh Habash Bioeffects and Therapeutic Applications of EM Energy

From cell phones to treating cancer, EM energy plays a part in many of the innovations that we take for granted everyday. A basic force of nature, like nuclear energy or gravity, this energy can be harnessed and used, but still holds the potential to be harmful. The question remains, how safe are EM products? Bioeffects and Therapeutic Applications of Electromagnetic Energy provides a review of cutting-edge research in EM health effects and EM therapy along with emerging areas of bioengineering and biomedical engineering.

The book allows you to:

  • Understand the necessary EM theory in the context of its interaction with the human body
  • Review cutting-edge research on EM health effects and EM therapy
  • Explore techniques developed to ensure adequate EM and thermal dosimetry required for health effects and thermal therapy
  • Strengthen your understanding of the rapidly emerging areas of bioengineering and biomedical engineering

Taking a transdisciplinary approach drawn from several intellectual streams that include physics, epidemiology, medicine, environment, risk assessment, and various disciplines of engineering, this book ventures into the conflicting studies to access research on bioeffects and therapeutic applications of EM energy. It is the only resource currently available that covers bioeffects and risk assessment of both extremely low frequency (ELF) fields and radiofrequency radiation (RFR) along with the recent developments in thermal therapy and imaging techniques. 2008, 400 pages.

Chapters examine methods for detecting endogenous electric field gradients and studying applied electric fields in the lab. The book addresses bioelectricity’s roles in guiding cell behavior during morphogenesis and orchestrating higher order patterning. It also covers the response of stem cells to applied electric fields, which reveals bioelectricity as an exciting new player in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.

This book provides an in-depth exploration of how electric signals control corneal wound repair and skin re-epithelialization, angiogenesis, and inflammation. It also delves into the bioelectric responses of cells derived from the musculoskeletal system, bioelectrical guidance of neurons, and the beneficial application of voltage gradients to promote regeneration in the spinal cord. It concludes with a discussion of bioelectricity and cancer progression and the potential for novel cancer biomarkers, new methods for early detection, and bioelectricity-based therapies to target both the tumor and metastatic cancer cells. 342 pages, 2011

The Physiology of Bioelectricity in Development, Tissue Regeneration and Cancer (Cat. #A568)……………. $125.95 add to cart


by Gerald Goldberg, MD

Warning Technology has transformed this planet into an open microwave system with its satellite transmissions. While the transmission of microwaved information can be handled in a safe and effective manner to provide for global communication without affecting the overall health of our planet, the health consequences from our current method of continuous low level exposure to microwave radiation can be catastrophic.

The book starts by examining dosimetry which shows which parts of the body are most sensitive to microwave radiation based on studies done by US Armed Forces. Dosimetry is also predictive of the pattern of injury that one would expect to find. The second chapter explains how microwave radiation produces disease. It examines the mechanisms of disease production in living systems. It also explains how microwave injury manifests as specific organ dysfunction, be it neurological, behavioral, immune, cancer etc. The third demonstrates through the use of graphs that the parallel and symmetrical rise of certain illnesses across broad geographic areas suggests a common force acting equally on all these regions. The graphs also demonstrate that it is the rate of increase not the absolute number of cases in a given region that is important. Examines the common link between microwave radiation and seemingly unrelated illnesses.

Presented in a clear language that the laymen can understand. Liberally referenced from the scientific literature. The book is designed to be generally informative as well as a reference source for the average reader. Even provides a wealth of resources that have been shown to be beneficial to offset the consequences of excess microwave exposure. 2006

9789283213253 Non-Ionizing Radiation: Part 1: Static and Extremely Low-Frequency (ELF) Electric and Magnetic Fields (IARC Monographs on the Evaluation of the Carcinogenic Risks to Humans)
Evaluations of the carcinogenic hazard to humans of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields in the (RF) range (30 kHz to 300 GHz) of the electromagnetic spectrum. This type of radiation is emitted by devices used in wireless telecommunication, including mobile phones, and by many other sources in occupational and general environmental settings.
9789283212805 Non-Ionizing Radiation: Part 1: Static and Extremely Low-Frequency (ELF) Electric and Magnetic Fields (IARC Monographs on the Evaluation of the Carcinogenic Risks to Humans)
Evaluates possible carcinogenic hazards from exposures to static and extremely low frequency (ELF) electric and magnetic fields. It is the first of two IARC Monographs volumes on various kinds of non-ionizing radiation. Extremely low frequency (ELF) magnetic field exposures result from proximity to electric power transmission lines, household wiring, and electric appliances and are in addition to the exposure that results from the earth's magnetic field.
9789241572323 Static Fields (Environmental Health Criteria Series)
This book examines the health effects of exposure to static electric and magnetic fields found in selected industries, such as medical facilities with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), high-energy physics research facilities and some transportation systems. To date, research on their health effects lags far behind the rapid advances in technology.

Electric and magnetic fields are generated by natural phenomena such as the Earth’s magnetic field, thunderstorms, and by man-made sources that use electricity. When such fields do not vary with time they are referred to as static.

For static electric fields, studies carried out to date suggest that the main effect is discomfort from electric discharges to the body. For static magnetic fields, acute effects are only likely to occur when there is movement of a person in the field. For example, a person moving within a relatively high field can experience sensations of vertigo and nausea, and sometimes a metallic taste in the mouth and perceptions of light flashes. Although only temporary, such effects may have a safety impact for workers executing delicate procedures, e.g. surgeons performing operations within MRI units. Even when at rest, a person will experience internal body movement, such as blood flow or heart beat. When placed within a high magnetic field, electrical fields and currents are generated around the heart and major blood vessels that can impede the flow of blood. Possible effects range from minor changes in heartbeat to an increase in the risk of abnormal heart rhythms that might be life threatening.

9789241572385 Extremely Low Frequency Fields (Environmental Health Criteria Series)
This volume evaluates possible carcinogenic hazards from exposures to static and extremely low frequency (ELF) electric and magnetic fields. It is the first of two IARC Monographs volumes on various kinds of non-ionizing radiation. Extremely low frequency (ELF) magnetic field exposures result from proximity to electric power transmission lines, household wiring, and electric appliances and are in addition to the exposure that results from the earth's magnetic field.

Overall, extremely low frequency magnetic fields were evaluated as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B). Static magnetic fields and static and extremely low frequency electric fields could not be classified as to carcinogenicity to humans (Group 3).
