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.

Título Mobile Phones and Health - The Stewart Report
Resumo This report considers present concerns about the possible health effects from the use of mobile phones, base stations and transmitters, it conducts a rigorous assessment of existing research and gives advice based on the present state of knowledge. It also makes recommendations on further work that should be carried out to improve the basis for sound advice.

Título Mobile Phones and Health 2004
Resumo Since the publication of the Stewart Report in May 2000, a substantial number of reviews into the health effects of mobile phones and health have been produced by national and international committees, expert groups, and agencies. These reports have reviewed the relevant literature, formed conclusions on the likelihood of adverse health effects, and made recommendations for additional research.This report reflects the understanding and evaluation of the current scientific evidence on mobile phones and health.

Título Mobile Telecommunications & Health Research Programme: Report 2007
Resumo Mobile phones have not been found to be associated with any biological or adverse health effects according to the UK’s largest investigation into the possible health risks from mobile telephone technology. The Mobile Telecommunications and Health Research (MTHR) Programme has published their conclusions as part of its 2007 Report. The six year research programme has found no association between short term mobile phone use and brain cancer. Studies on volunteers also showed no evidence that brain function was affected by mobile phone signals or the signals used by the emergency services (TETRA). The MTHR programme management committee believes there is no need to support further work in this area. The research programme also included the largest and most robust studies of electrical hypersensitivity undertaken anywhere in the world. These studies have found no evidence that the unpleasant symptoms experienced by sufferers are the result of exposure to signals from mobile phones or base stations. The situation for longer term exposure is less clear as studies have so far only included a limited number of participants who have used their phones for 10 years or more. The committee recommends more research be conducted in this area. The MTHR programme also investigated whether mobile phones might affect cells and tissue beyond simply heating them. The results so far show no evidence for this and the committee believes there is no need to support further work in this area.

Título Possible effects of Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) on Human Health
Resumo The Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks (SCENIHR) has updated the previous opinion on ”Possible effects of Electromagnetic Fields (EMF), Radio Frequency Fields (RF) and Microwave Radiation on human health” by the Scientific Committee on Toxicity, Ecotoxicity and the Environment (CSTEE) from 2001, with respect to whether or not exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) is a cause of disease or other health effects. The opinion is primarily based on scientific articles, published in English language peer-reviewed scientific journals. Only studies that are considered relevant for the task are cited and commented upon in the opinion. The opinion is divided into frequency (f) bands, namely: radio frequency (RF) (100 kHz < f ≤ 300 GHz),intermediate frequency (IF) (300 Hz < f ≤ 100 kHz), extremely low frequency (ELF)(0< f ≤ 300 Hz), and static (0 Hz) (only static magnetic fields are considered in this opinion). There is a separate section for environmental effects.
