... the results show delayed puberty in female rats which exposed to 2.45 GHz, also increased of total oxidant status and oxidative stress index values in the brain which can explain as chronic stress induced by the exposure to 2.45 GHz electric magnetic field [9]. These studies have been extended to examine the effect of using WI-FI by Laptop to sperm motility and sperm DNA fragmentation of men [10]. This study shows that the sperm DNA fragmentation has been increased while the decrease the of sperm motility. ...
... While for the outdoor broadcasting device the result takes from another study [1], which take AL-Najaf city as a sample which contains 1250 towers, each tower contains many types of broadcast devices. The measurement of outdoor broadcasting has been done at the high point of broadcasting based on [10], the result can show as in table 2. From these tables, we can see that the effect of indoor broadcasting is more dangerous than the outdoor broadcasting. Although these type of broadcasting is less than International standards which are adopted by most of the countries and related organizations [1]. ...

Internet-based technology such as mobile and computers have been widely grown over the world in the recent years. Indoor Internet wireless has spread rapidly instead of a traditional method which using cable-based services to get the Internet services. Today hardly non-exist these devices in any house or office. A lot of people concerned about the effect these devices especially effect on children. Hundreds of reports talked about the Electromagnetic field (EMF) emitted by wireless devices and its effect on both human and animal. In Iraq the wireless broadcasting has been divided into two types, these kinds include indoor wireless broadcasting and outdoor wireless broadcasting by using towers. In this paper, comparing between two type of broadcasting from the perspective of power density which is accredited by most of the organization that specializes in EMF. In the indoor broadcasting, different types of wireless broadcasting devices take as a sample to measure the power density, whilst, the in outdoor broadcasting Previous measurements take to compare with indoor measurements. The measurements obtained from this study show that the effects of the internal broadcasting devices are more influential than the external broadcasting devices that connected to the towers, especially for very close distances. Therefore, this study emphasizes to remove these devices from the bedrooms and classrooms and patients rooms.

Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity is categorised as a multisymptomatic 'el-allergy' in the Nordic classification of 2000 (R.68.8). Its symptoms are 'certainly real' and it can be a 'disabling condition' (W.H.O., 2005). It was first recorded in the mid 20th century as an occupational illness, but it has now spread into the general population through environmental exposure from increasing levels of electromagnetic fields and radiation. This Summary covers current research on this syndrome, covering EM Sensitivity and EM Hypersensitivity. It includes tables of symptoms, EMF sources and exposure guidelines, along with references to scientific studies. This New Edition adds updates, international doctors' protocols, aspects of quantum biology, evidence for sensitivity in animals and plants, case studies, disability issues and human rights.

This chapter will identify how Australian university students access and use various forms of technology (Web 1.0 – Internet, Web 2.0 – social media - SM) to retrieve personal health information. This chapter will move beyond Web 1.0, to present a theoretical basis of claim, concerning the extent to which other forms of technology (e.g. Web 2.0 and wireless monitoring devices) have impacted on youth. What is more, attention will be directed towards outlining to what degree this has shaped their patterns of health information retrieval. Importantly, this chapter aligns with contemporary literature that suggests a need for further studies into the area of human - technology interactions, which promotes sustainable action plans and strategies that will create and encourage reform throughout e-health programs and interactive communication platforms. Given that Australian university students are prolific users of modern forms of communication technology and that youth, in general, characteristically undertake relatively high levels of risky health behaviours and unhealthy lifestyle choices, such a chapter would seem warranted.

Тhe article presents results of exploratory research on the assessment of the impact of Wi-Fi equipment on the organism of laboratory animals. The study was executed in a specially equipped semi-anechoic chambers, to eliminate the influence of other sources, which can have a direct or indirect impact on animals. As a source of EMR there was used the router for wireless access to the Internet (brand: ZyXEL KeeneticExtra). Laboratory animals (20 white male mice), and control group (20 animals)were placed at a distance of 0.5 m and 1 m from the EMR source in a room without EMR source. Weekly every laboratory animal performed tests on the assessment of behavioral reactions, depression and working memory using the test «open field», «T-maze», «forced swimming». After 36-days round-the-clock exposure in animals there was a decrease in indices of horizontal and vertical locomotor activity, the development of the depressive state on the 25th day of the study.

To date, the greatest «contribution» to the electromagnetic load experienced by young people is made by modern means of communication, namely mobile phones (MPhs) and personal computers (PCs). Electromagnetic radiation generated by a PC can cause the development of functional disorders and pathological conditions. The possibility of formation of antibodies in the body under the influence of electromagnetic fields (EMF) of the PC is established. The prevalence rate of gestosis and the risk of spontaneous miscarriages are high. At the same time, the exposure dose of 20 hours per week is considered critical. Experimental studies of EMF in the operation of laptops revealed EMF of the microwave range in 25% of cases. A separate problem is the use of mobile communications. In studies conducted on adult volunteers-MPh users, changes in the electroencephalogram were found. Experimental studies in experimental animals have shown that the effect of EMF of MPhs on experimental animals in the embryonic period influences the development of the fetus in the uterus and the subsequent formation of the organism. In adult animals, the reproductive function is impaired: the number of spermatozoa decreases, morphological changes in the testicles appear. In real conditions, EMF from various sources operates on the population. But, as a rule, we consider the danger from one or two sources. The interference of the dangers of these sources is not established taking into account the age and specificity of the subject’s work. At present, the investigation of the complex effect of non-ionizing electromagnetic factors of the external environment on the human body is topical.

A QLD L , Aus P tral R ia ABSTRACT OOF Modern communication systems (Web 1.0, Web 2.0, cloud computing) and mobile wireless technologies (smartphones, iPads, monitoring devices) have, as with all industries, progressed in healthcare over recent years from being a minor, to being a very significant component of the environment. This paper will discuss how advancements in information technology, wireless communication systems and sensor technology have provided new opportunities concerning practices for managing Chronic Disease (CD). This paper will also address future software, touching on Web 3.0 and how, combined with Web 2.0 and cloud computing, has the potential to produce the ultimate architecture of participation. Understanding the benefits of such systems, devices and their increasing emergence and connection with modern healthcare settings, is vital for imple-menting future successful e-health solutions for people with CD.
