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.
