English

Description

Continuing with the research presented in the first volume in this series, Wireless Technologies Research LLC (WTR) sets out to answer the following questions: is there a public health problem posed by the use of wireless instruments? If yes, what is the extent of the problem? What are the appropriate interventions to solve the public health problem? What is the appropriate intervention strategy for those interventions?
