This book represents a comprehensive overview of the distribution of the various forms of mobile communications (with increasing variations and intensities) devices, which represent a serious hazard to the biosphere and especially mankind, due to the lack of controls of sources of mobile communication signals and absence of monitoring of the health of individuals, exposed to microwave radiation. It also entails a review of engineering of mobile communication devices and a summary of basic science evidence of the effects of microwave biological exposure. There is also unique coverage on the potential hazards of mobile communications on children.
