Excerpt
Foreword An International Meeting on Electromagnetic Fields: Biological Effects and Hygienic Standards, was held in Moscow 18-22 May 1998. The meeting was sponsored jointly by WHO'S Internaiional EMF Project, the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences (RAMS) Institute of Occupational Medicine and the Centre of Bioelectromagnetic Compatibility mithin the Institute of Biophysics. Important objectives for this meeting included bridging gaps in scientific literature on the biological and health effects of exposure to EMF that have been published in Russian and creating an awareness of a s i d c a n t portion of the science that has accumulated in Eastern European countries. Much of the scientific literature from countries of the former Soviet Union has been published in Russian and so has not been readily available to other scientists in the world. Russia was the one of the first countries to start fundamental research into biological and health effects of EMF. The Soviet government introduced the first hygienic standards limiting EMF exposure as early as the late 5'0's. Russian research suggests a relationship between the intensity and duration of EMF exposure and the reaction of human body to it. This was used in developing occupational and other standards based upon a dose-response approach Such scientific information needs to be better understood by the wider scientific community.
