Research

Since in 1980, microwave ovens, in 1993 DECT cordless phones and in early 2000s mobile phones, quickly followed by laptops with Wi-Fi connections, smartphones and tablets, smart watches and more were introduced to our households, scientists are asking themselves about the effects of electromagnetic radiation on human health.

And this question is quite justified: Now, in 2019, several such radiant devices come on every fellow citizens. Many devices permanently irradiate us in our own home, some devices we continously keep with us and others provide us with the possibility of wireless communication in any public facility. We can no longer avoid EMF.

In this section we provide you with a (small) selection of summary articles and original publications on scientific research.

The Russian RNCNIRP resultion

At the time of the large-scale introduction of mobile communications, hardly any other country has had more knowledge of non-ionizing radiation than Russia. This was due to intensive wartime military research. As a result, in 2011, the appence of the Russian RNCNIRP for the protection of the health of children and adolescents from mobile phone radiation.
