The aim of this report was to produce an independent critical review of the recent literature on the possible biological and health effects of low-intensity, high-frequency electromagnetic fields, from the viewpoint of the region’s scientists and experts. Examples of these electromagnetic fields, which are called radiofrequency (RF) fields, are those used for radio and TV communication, mobile voice and data communication and wireless data networks. Special emphasis was to be placed on the results of studies conducted in Latin American countries. International and national exposure limits, policies and standards are also examined in this respect.
