Electromagnetic fields and health

Technologies which use radio frequency waves - Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Wimax, mobile telephones, etc. - have seen rapid growth over the last 20 years. Due to this, the sources of radio frequency electromagnetic fields have become abundant in our environment, and have become a subject of health concern, as well as a concern for the environment, both in France and abroad. The subject therefore has received constant coverage both in a scientific and a political context and with regard to the media. The Agency is involved is expertise activities in virtually all the areas involving the full spectrum of ionising radiation, from extremely low frequencies to millimetre waves.  See our work on this topic.
