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.

Non-Ionising Radiation (NIR)

Within the frequency spectrum non-ionising radiation includes electromagnetic fields (EMF), infrared radiation and optical radiation. UV radiation constitutes the transition to the so-called ionising radiation. The latter is so is energy-rich that it can directly damage the human body. This is not the case with NIR.
