These evaluations have alerted the society about how the radiations emitted by the transformers, the high voltage lines or the antennas of mobile telephony can affect the health of the people.
On the other hand, ionizing radiations are characterized by their high energy. They have the ability to break the chemical bonds of cell modules. The harmful effects on health are contrasted and lead to pathologies.
