Título Nonionizing radiations - Current issues and controversies: A minisymposium
Información bibliográfica Feb. 1983, Vol.25, No.2, p.95-111. Illus. 61 ref.
Resumen Proceedings of a minisymposium on nonionising radiations held as part of the Joint Conference on Occupational Health, Nashville, USA, Oct. 1981. The texts of 4 papers read at the minisymposium are reproduced. They cover: a study of video display terminal workers; the video display terminals - is there a radiation hazard? (levels and effects of electromagnetic emissions); ocular hazards of light sources: review of current knowledge (retinal damage due to exposure to blue light and near ultraviolet light); bioeffects of microwaves - a review of current knowledge (fundamental properties of microwave energy, tissue interaction mechanisms and bioeffects). A summary of the points of view expressed at the panel discussion following presentation of the papers is given.
