Our dependence on electromagnetic radiation includes transportation, communication, entertainment and health. Consequently electromagnetic fields interact with inner electromagnetism or tissue structures of living systems such as human beings, promoting at the same time a great interest between biomedical and natural sciences while improving our knowledge to develop new and better diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.

All kinds of biological and health effects concerning electromagnetic fields have also become a matter of public concern. According to available scientific data, exposure to EM radiation is considered likely to be harmful to human health among other agents.

Students, researchers, as well as scientists from various fields who want a brief introduction as well as a deeper understanding of this field are encouraged to study the consequences of electromagnetic radiation on human health.
