    Nonionizing Radiation. We use and are exposed to nonionizing radiation sources every day. Microwave ovens use microwaves to heat food, toasters use infrared waves to heat and sometimes burn our toast, and we watch television, talk on cell phones, and listen to the radio through the use of radio waves. These are all nonionizing forms of radiation. The effects of EMFs exposure on the biological systems and human body, due to its potential health hazards, have become the focus of interest since many years ago. The aim of this review is to investigate the biological effects of non-ionizing electromagnetic fields (EMFs) on human body and biological systems on the basis of recent findings.

    This book is about the biological effects of electromagnetic radiation in the nonionizing and lower-frequency range of the spectrum.

Introduction; either directly or indirectly, act as sources of non-ionizing radiation (NIR). The UV wavelength is the determining factor as to which part(s) of the eye may absorb the radiation and suffer biological effects. Absorption of UV wavelengths in the Human Eye. Wavelength.

    spectrum is considered non-ionizing Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR), with energy levels below that required magnetic fields may cause biological effects, the adverse effects on human health are highly controversial. energy is absorbed from either source, the effects File Size: KB. non ionizing radiation Nonionizing radiation refers to "Radiation that has enough energy to move atoms in a molecule around or cause them to vibrate, but not enough to remove electrons, Examples of this kind of radiation are sound waves, visible light, and microwaves.".

Biological Effects of Radiation. The increased use of radioisotopes has led to increased concerns over the effects of these materials on biological systems (such as humans). All radioactive nuclides emit high-energy particles or electromagnetic waves.

This review discusses the results of in vitro, in vivo and epidemiological studies on the effects of non-ionizing electromagnetic fields (EMFs) on cells and organs. Emphasis is laid on the analysis of recent reports on the role of EMF in the induction of Cited by: 3.

Primary sources of such radiation are visible light, ultraviolet light, infrared light, cosmic rays from outer space and the human body’s natural radioactivity [18].

Non-ionizing Radiation Electromagnetic radiation with inadequate energy to cause effects at the atomic level is considered as non-ionizing radiation.

Our paper deals with three different aspects of biological effects of non-ionizing radiation, bioelectromagnetism, electromagnetobiology and electromagnetic bioinformation. Firstly, we describe how EMF and photons can be produced within a living cell, how biological cycles are controlled, and what are the features of endogenous electromagnetic Cited by: 8.

These efforts should be good news to all who believe that the cell's surface is an important site in the interaction of electromagnetic fields with bio. Human exposures to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields can occur from use of personal devices (e.g.

mobile telephones, cordless phones, Bluetooth, and amateur radios), from occupational sources (e.g. high-frequency dielectric and induction heaters, high-powered pulsed radars), and from environmental sources (e.g. mobile-phone base stations, broadcast.

There is a large difference in the magnitude of the biological effects of nonionizing radiation (for example, light and microwaves) and ionizing radiation, emissions energetic enough to knock electrons out of molecules (for example, α and β particles, γ rays, X-rays, and high-energy ultraviolet radiation).Author: OpenStax.

Some common examples of radiation sources are X-ray, nuclear reactors and CT scan. Mobile phones, microwave ovens, and television are also sources of EMW.

Radiation exists all around us, from both natural and manmade sources, and is in two forms: ionizing and non-ionizing radiation. Ionizing radiation is a form of energy that acts by removing electrons from atoms and molecules of materials that include air, water, and living tissue.

Ionizing radiation can travel unseen and pass through these materials. Biological effects [ edit | edit source] The electric and magnetic components of non-ionising radiation may produce in general non-specific neuropsychic disturbances in man.

Like ionizing radiation, such as x-rays and gamma rays, NIR is a part of the electromagnetic (EM) spectrum and is propagated as waves through a vacuum or some medium.

However, NIR differs from ionizing radiation because it consists of lower quantum energies and, therefore, has different biological effects.
