Terms that are frequently used in the knowledge pages are explained in the glossary. Many biological and medicinal terms are listed. This does not automatically mean that EMFs were a health problem. The connections between EMF, biology and health are shown in the topic pages.
In addition, we also recommend the glossary of the EMF-portal of the Uniklinik RWTH Aachen.
- In vitro studies
Laboratory studies with isolated cells or cell cultures taken from living things.
- In vivo studies

- ionising radiation
Radiation that possesses sufficient energy to change the building blocks of living things (atoms, molecules). Ionising radiation such as X-rays or radio activity can directly and irreparably damage an organism.
