What was intended as an informal gathering piqued the interest of so many prominent scientists that it was elevated into a formal symposium of the International Union of Radio Science conference. The 16 papers generated discuss the effect of biomagnetic and electromagnetic fields at the genetic, cellular, and hormonal levels as investigated by both laboratory and epidemiological methods; intended direct effects such as neural stimulation, and unintended indirect effects from such sources as power lines, consumer electronics, and mobile telephones; anxieties about such effects as immune system damage and cancer; and hopes for potential beneficial applications.
