In the past the introduction of mobile telephony brought an overwhelming increase of number of electromagnetic fields (EMF)-emitting devices and market penetrations with formerly unknown speed. However, in spite of benefits, concerns about adverse health effects of EMF emitted and even offensive refusal of new emerging technologies could be noticed.
The symposia will overview toxicology and cellular mechanisms of electromagnetic fields and the health aspects of exposure to EMF emitted by wireless mobile systems and emerging technology. The recent experimental research in the field of toxicology, carcinogenicity, genotoxicology and endocrinology will be introduced highlighting the different cellular mechanisms such as radical pair mechanisms, oxidative stress and adaptive response. Within the symposia the results of largest US toxicological program related to mobile phone exposure under the US National Toxicological Program (NTP) will be also introduced. Several European key researchers will present the latest results from the top European EMF laboratories.
