This journal covers the research worldwide as well as the
debate over regulations that set safe EMR exposure standards.

Digest Update, EMF Database and EMF Health Report
This site summarizes
and discusses the results of key EMF bioeffects research published
in a broad spectrum of professional journals. BENER Digest
Update is a quarterly print publication. EMF Database is an
electronic database distributed on CD-ROM and updated quarterly.
Both publications provide detailed abstracts of EMF literature.
EMF Health Report is a bimonthly newsletter which discusses
critical research papers such as those referenced in an article
by Foster and Moulder in the August 2000 issue of IEEE Spectrum.
To identify additional publications related to cell phone
safety, check out EMFcite which includes citations to the
scientific literature on bioeffects of nonionizing radiation
covering the spectrum from static magnetic and electric fields
to radiofrequency radiation.
Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) Information Service
Bridlewood is one of the oldest and most comprehensive sites
on this subject. They have an excellent bibliography.
Search for articles on Electromagnetic Fields. Also links

EMF Program - Fact Sheets on electromagnetic radiation
exposures in the home, school, and workplace as well as information
on EMR research findings.

Evaluation of the Possible Risks From Electric and Magnetic
Fields (EMFs) From Power Lines, Internal Wiring, Electrical
Occupations and Appliances.
- The Risk Evaluation analyzes the potential human health
risks of magnetic field exposure. Specifically, this document
provides an evaluation of the animal, laboratory and human
evidence that shows how exposure to 50/60 Hz magnetic fields
may or may not increase human health risks. The Risk Evaluation
is based on the results of published research studies, with
emphasis on new studies, the National Institute of Environmental
Health Sciences (NIEHS) Working Group Report, and the results
of the California EMF Program Studies.

This Dissemination Program was directed by the National Institute
of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), a branch of the
National Institute of Health (NIH). The program studied the

Infoline is no longer responding to inquiries from the general
public for information about possible health effects associated
with exposure to electric and magnetic fields. Federal government
support for the program ceased at the end of 1998. Currently,
no U.S. federal government agency program exists to provide
the public with substantive information and answers to questions
about electric and magnetic fields.
Alasdair Phillips' Powerwatch was established in 1988 to help
people learn more about electromagnetic fields and how these
affect health, and also to promote the responsible and efficient
use of power (especially as the UK Government has announced
permission for more gas-fired power stations), though this
web-site concentrates on the health effects issues. We are
now surrounded by man-made Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) millions
times higher than the natural background ones due to our use
of electricity, radio, TV, and microwaves. We believe that
the research now shows there is an association between exposure
to EMFs and adverse health effects in people and animals."
Here is Alasdair Philips' chart
comparing RF exposure guidelines.
Our bodies function with subtle electro-chemical messages
and processes that we are only just beginning to understand.
It is absolute arrogance to assert that we know these non-ionizing
radiating technologies are safe." "In light of the scientific
evidence, which shows serious effects at vanishingly small
exposures, this assertion of safety based on scientific knowledge
borders on misrepresentation; however, it is probably that
a difference in how Physicists and Biologists view the Scientific
Process is at the foundation of the scientific disagreement."
