Radio Waves and Health Effects

The informative series of electronic modules based on the British National
Radiological Protection Board (NRPB) broadsheets has a new addition. Radio
waves illustrates the nature of radio waves and how they affect our day-to-day
lives. It shows how radio waves of various frequencies are used and outlines
health effects and research undertaken to-date.

Moduls to access are:

- Radon;

- Transport of Radioactive Materials;

- Nuclear Emergencies; and

- Doses from Discharges.

Other planned future modules include Electric and Magnetic Fields, Ultraviolet
Radiation and Maps and Magnitudes.

They are intended for readers with little or no knowledge of the various
radiation topics and rely heavily on colourful eye-catching illustrations and
captions as the prime means of communicating information.
