Abstract : This report the analyses of research results and other pertinent information on the biological effects of radiofrequency radiation (RFR). The frequency range of primary interest is 10 kHz to 300 GHz. The main purpose of this report is to serve as a basic reference for other documents dealing with the environmental impact of proposed or currently operating USAF emitter systems with regards to health and safety aspects of exposure to RFR. The report is divided into 7 sections with various aspects of the present knowledge regarding biological effects of RFR. More than 600 references from the world's literature are cited. Keywords: Radiation effects; Exposure(Physiology); Health hazards; Electromagnetic radiation; Microwaves.
