In the recent years, by developing the usage of new popular Electronic-Communication gadgets and home appliances like Mobile Phones and Microwave Ovens which are mostly

sources of Electromagnetic Wave Radiation, a severe public concern regarding the sideeffects “whether positive or negative” on human health and environment has been arisen. It means that there are new challenging issues rather than old one “the exposing to low radiofrequency emissions” which have been studied for past decades. Indeed, for more than 100 years, human has exposed to the Radio-waves radiation from Radio & TV broadcasting

transmitters besides the Radar and point to point V/UHF/microwave links. However due to the low power density of those high frequency emissions which were far enough, the only low frequency was considered as main and important subject of EMF to human.

To set the limitations on all types of EMF Radiations the “International Non-Ionizing Radiation Committee” INIRC, in cooperation with “World Health Organization” WHO, had

started their activities for 4 decades. Their first report to “United Nations Environment Program” UNEP has been approved in 1977. Later in 1992, to professionally study and

investigate the detriments of Non-Ionized radiation and its effects on environment, INIRC changed to “International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection” ICNIRP. In spite of world activities that have been done so far, it can be easily understood that all kinds of EMF radiations, which we regularly use in industry and/ or in our personal life has

become a vital part that we cannot ignore. Therefore, sometimes we expect and also suffer from and its side effects
