Summary:We review the various studies on the potential impact of telecommunications networks on health, these studies relate to the possible health effects due to thermal effect of non-ionizing radiation produced greater increases in body temperature at 1 ºC. f urthermore, the studies were reviewed for assessment of exposure to non-ionizing radiation of telecommunications networks in Peru from 2000 to 2006 that include the measurement of more than 500 locations. The highest average levels of exposure in Peru are produced by the f M radio and are in the order of 29% of the recommended limits, while those produced by the mobile base stations are at 1.5% population. The highest levels of exposure are given by mobile phones but still within the permissible limits. The risk assessment of non-ionizing radiation of telecommunications networks in Peru shows that the health risk of the fixed stations is not significant, but in the case of stations (cell) the risk is higher and its importance depend on the results of international investigations that are ongoing.
