Is Heat From Radiofrequency Exposure Damaging Human Health?
Date:7/5/2011

NEW YORK, July 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --


 

The world-renowned International Journal of Hyperthermia has unveiled a new special issue which addresses the thermal aspects of radiofrequency exposure on human health. This special issue resulted from a workshop born out of the controversies surrounding huge growth and use of wireless communication.

In the issue, invited experts further refine a quantitative assessment of the effects of thermal energy on tissue damage, fetal development, immune function and neurocognitive behaviour. The special issue papers are available on:  http://informahealthcare.com/toc/hth/27/4.

One of the key findings of the workshop and research papers is that while radiofrequency exposure standards can surely be refined further, it is fair to say that the present exposure limits set for the general public are far more protective against thermal hazards than recommended limits for the temperature of hot water in the home.

"The purpose of the workshop - and the resulting special issue - was to review current knowledge of the effects of heat on the body that are of potential relevance to setting limits for human exposure to radiofrequency," explains the lead review author, Kenneth R Foster, of the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Pennsylvania. "Thermal damage to the body is clearly a very large topic; our discussion and this special issue focuses on thermal effects that are likely to be relevant to setting radiofrequency exposure limits."

"We examined the most appropriate health endpoints for a given tissue or system, appropriate time periods for acute and chronic exposure, time-temperature thresholds for adverse effects, as well as cost effective and targeted research to help us better understand and define human exposure standards," continued Foster.

"The upshot was that current radiofrequency limits, as
