Information Ventures Releases Electromagnetic Field Database

Information Ventures, Inc. has recently released a unique database that examines the biological effects of electromagnetic fields. Through analytical abstracts of research literature that studies nonunionizing electromagnetic radiation, the EMF Database supports researchers, engineers, policy makers, technology experts and other interested parties by analyzing and compiling the world's scientific and technical literature pertaining to the bioeffects of EMF (electromagnetic fields).

The EMF has been prepared in response to the growing concern over possible harmful effects of electromagnetic energy, especially extremely low frequency magnetic fields, which are produced by electronic power systems and common electrical appliances. Through the EMF Database, relevant research literature is collected from a range of specialized scientific disciplines including engineering, psychology, biophysics, medicine, cell biology, animal toxicology, and epidemiology. Covering such EMF sources as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), AM, FM and television broadcasting, medical applicators, microwave ovens and video display terminals (VDTs), the database explores topics ranging from risk assessment and exposure guidelines, behavioral, genetic, and neurological effects, immune systems and genetics to bone and skin healing, diathermy/hypermedia, carcinogenesis, mutagenesis and toxicology, and experimental apparatus design.

Presently containing almost 9,000 original abstracts prepared by scientific staff, the entries provide enough technical details to serve as substitutes for the full article, while background interpretations in the abstracts allow scientists and engineers to evaluate the significance of the experimental work. …
