These include the IEEE C standard [1] and the recommendations of the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP) [2], the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) [3] and the National Radiation Protection Board (NRPB) in the United Kingdom [4].File Size: KB.

A medical report in the International Journal of Occupational and Environmental Health confirms that workers exposed to high levels of RF/microwave radiation routinely have astronomical cancer rates The report notes that, for these workers, the latency period between high radiation exposure and illness is short compared to less exposed populations.

This method might not be the most suitable for dealing with 5G radiation, but walking around barefoot every now and then is hardly going to cause any harm.

If possible, make an effort to walk around for minutes every day, preferably outside, in order to earth yourself and reduce your risk of EMF radiation damage. Educate yourself. Overview. Radiofrequency (RF) and microwave (MW) radiation are electromagnetic radiation in the frequency ranges 3 kilohertz (kHz) - Megahertz (MHz), and MHz - gigahertz (GHz), respectively.

Research continues on possible biological effects of exposure to RF/MW radiation from radios, cellular phones, the processing and cooking of foods. In the EEC published a provisional standard for the protection of workers and members of the general population against the adverse effects of microwave radiation.

This directive prompted the author to describe the physical characteristics and application of microwave radiation, accidental risks of detonating explosives or interfering with pace-makers and the Author: F.
