Since the advent of Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM), which brought the perception of any and all people to the existence of electromagnetic fields in their environment, there have been widespread trepidation about the possible effects of electromagnetic radiation on human body with particular allusion to the ones present at our living and work places. This paper therefore analyzes the interaction and effects of electromagnetic fields, the radio frequency radiations in particular, have on human body. The interplay of EMF with human tissues is expressed with Maxwell’s equations; and the human body tissues possess the dielectric properties of permittivity and conductivity, and are equally dispersive and frequency dependent. The EMF energy being conveyed by photon determines its effects on any medium of interaction with its energy ionization potentials (IPs) on biomolecular system, lying between 8-10eV energy range, which is somewhat lows and hence cannot trigger ionization. Therefore, electromagnetic field within the range of RF spectrum is generally considered non-ionizing, and since all significant consequences of EMF radiation are believed to be directly proportional to the degree of ionization and the deposited energy engendered in the biological organism, we deduced that the RF radiation does not possess the capacity to ionize, and its effects on human tissues are for that reason inferred insignificant.
