What Is Actinobiology?
Actinobiology is an interdisciplinary field of basic and clinical medical science that primarily deals with the physiology and behavior of living organisms, especially human health effects of electromagnetic radiation (EMR). Electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) are emitted from all kinds of electronic devices and sources, including cell phones, television sets, computers, microwave ovens, radio transmitters, and some medical equipment used in hospitals. Many people report health problems after repeatedly being exposed to EMFs. These symptoms include headaches, fatigue, nausea, insomnia, tinnitus, hearing loss, stress, and even depression.
Numerous laboratories across the United States have been conducting various studies on the physiological and behavioral effects of EMR on humans, and there are also numerous journals dedicated to this topic. Some of these studies focus on exposure to EMR in the workplace, while other studies look at the effects of EMR on the body of an individual. Several organizations, such as the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), have funded extensive research projects on the effects of EMR on humans. Many of these studies have found that exposure to EMR can produce health problems, but the evidence is also consistent with the idea that exposure to EMR does not necessarily cause health problems. There has also been some debate about the effect of EMR on cell DNA. However, there has been no definitive study linking EMR with any kind of damage on the cellular DNA. Still, this type of study still continues because there are still some questions regarding the effect of EMR on cellular DNA.
There are still many other types of studies that are being conducted in order to establish the effect of EMR on the human body. Some of these studies are focusing on the effect of EMR on children, the elderly, and on pregnant women. The effects of electromagnetic frequencies on the nervous system, as well as on the immune system and the reproductive system, have also been studied. However, since most people who have been exposed to EMR have not developed health problems, these studies have not been very conclusive. Nevertheless, these studies, along with the growing evidence of the effects of EMR on people’s health, show that we need to find a better way to protect ourselves from EMR.
