Biological effects of electromagnetic-field exposure have been a subject of continuing concern for a number of reasons. The effects have been broadly divided into two parts: thermal and nonthermal, though the demarcation between the two is not well defined. Recently, a large amount of experimental data has accumulated, indicating a variety of biological effects much below the accepted criteria for safe exposure. The biological effects, which may or may not involve health implications, are many. This includes the blood-brain barrier, ornithidine decarboxylase, the role of Ca
