Abstract

The phenomena of non thermal effects of extremely high frequency electromagnetic radiation on biological systems is explored. It is demonstrated that the effect is existent on human beings and is correlated to their physiological state via a measurement of the reflection coefficient of the palm. Possible sources of transient currents in biological systems ,needed to elicit a response are proposed and discussed.
