Contribution to formulation of safety standards for exposure to electromagnetic fields

Concerning the applications, the experimental results may be useful for the revision of the exposure limits to electromagnetic fields. As a matter of fact, the current limits, set by the European Commission and national legislation for the general population exposure to electromagnetic fields in the range 0 Hz-300 GHz, are based on thermal effects. Although in the current state of knowledge, the exposure limits ensure health safety, they do not take into account the non-thermal biological effects, that potentially may occur especially in the case of medium and long exposure.
