A review of the military applications and the harmful effects of microwave on humans
Abstract:   (935 Views)
Introduction: microwave radiation, are waves with the short wavelength and high energy which are used in telecommunication systems, radars and home appliances such as microwave ovens. The power and energy of these waves can be used to damage humans and equipment. The purpose of this study is to introduce the military applications of microwave waves and the effects of these waves on humans.
Method: In this review study, by researching in reputable scientific databases such as PubMed, Science Direct, Springer and Google Scholar, the use of microwave radiation as weapons and the effects of these waves on human health has been addressed and the results were analyzed.
Results: Microwave radiation in the form of “Rear door” pulses whit the wireless mechanism, cause the electronic systems to be neutralized or deactivated and in the “Front door” they destroy the power cables and telephone lines. These waves have different side effects on the endocrine, cardiovascular, immune, reproductive and hematopoietic stem systems at various frequencies. At the same time military's use of these waves against humans, the ways to deal with it, such as physical methods, observance of distance from waves, and some standards, are in progress.
Regarding the advancement of technology and the focus of Western countries on microwave-based weapons, field studies are necessary to recognize, counteract and reduce the effects of these weapons on humans and equipment.
Keywords: microwave radiations, thermal and non-thermal effects, leakage standards, exposure standards
