  • Waves
    • radio
      • used for broadcasting, communication and satellite transmission
    • micro
      • used to transmit signals, like mobile phone calls
      • causes internal heating of cells
    • infra-red
      • used for cooking, thermal imaging and security systems
      • felt as heat so can cause burns
    • EM Spectrum
      • visible light
        • used for vision photography and illumination
        • its just normal light so it can cause blindness, both temporary and permanant.
      • Rays
        • ultra violet
          • used for disinfecting water, mapping and scanning forged bank notes
          • given off by the sun, so can cause cell mutations
        • x-rays
          • airport scanner and medical x-rays
          • can cause cell mutation and cell death
        • gamma
          • used for sterilisation and scanning for certain diseases and they curing, i.e. cancer
            • not for creating super human green monsters
