Título ABC das Ondas Eletromagnéticas
Resumo Apresentam-se conceitos básicos relacionados com a exposição à radiação eletromagnética, abordando-se noções fundamentais sobre ondas eletromagnéticas e sobre aspetos gerais comuns às diferentes áreas de aplicação da radiação. Focam-se também aspetos particulares da exposição à radiação de radiofrequência, nomeadamente a proveniente dos sistemas de comunicações móveis.

Título Electric and Magnetic Fields - Measurements and possible effect on human health: what we know and what we don’t know in 2000
Resumo The California EMF Program developed this fact sheet to give an overview of the present state of knowledge and provide a basis for understanding the current limitations on the ability of science to resolve questions about the possible health risks of magnetic field exposure. This paper describes electric and magnetic fields, high field sources and how to interpret field measurements once they are made. It includes discussions of the controversy about possible health effects, as well as current California state policy and what the government is doing to address public concern.

Título Exposure to high frequency electromagnetic fields, biological effects and health consequences (100 kHz-300 GHz)
Resumo This document addresses the current scientific evidence concerning exposure to high frequency electromagnetic fields (EMF) and the resulting consequences for health. It covers all scientific aspects relevant in this area which include numerical dosimetry, measurements, biological laboratory investigations in vitro and in vivo, as well as epidemiological findings. This review was motivated by the needs of the World Health Organization’s International EMF Project and ICNIRP’s own agenda of reviewing its guidance and advice on the health hazards of EMF exposure. Since the 1998 publication of the ICNIRP guidelines on limiting exposure to electromagnetic fields, there have been important studies published, that need detailed analysis and discussion to determine their implications for health. This review only addresses high frequency EMFs from 100 kHz to 300 GHz. It aims at providing input to the respective health risk assessment currently undertaken by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Título Health Effects of Exposure to EMF
Resumo The purpose of this opinion is to update the SCENIHR opinion of March 2007 in the light of newly available information, and to provide a methodological framework and corresponding guidelines to evaluate available scientific evidence in order to ensure the best possible quality for risk assessment. In order to update the opinion, a scientific rationale was established. This rationale contains relevant scientific knowledge from the physical, engineering, medical and biological sciences which is critically evaluated and summarised. When appropriate, gaps in knowledge are highlighted and suggestions for future important areas of research are included. This opinion also addresses the issue of childrens sensitivity, and in particular dosimetry aspects of radiofrequency exposure of children.
