Abstract: In the present scenario the use of radio communication has extensively increased. The main examples are mobile phones, radio, television,radars etc. Especially, with the excessive use of mobile phones, the whole atmosphere has filled with radio waves. The emitted waves from the tower of radio, T.V. and mobile phones play a significant role in affecting the life of human beings. These waves are harmful for everybody,especially humans, because waves produce thermal effect in living cells. This increases temperature, which depends upon the heat emitting capacity of the body. Due to the excessive thermal effect in the area of radio frequency, the natural cooling system of the body is overcome.The cells with less flow of blood are mostly affected; the eye lenses are the good examples to show this effect. Development of womb and memory power is also affected by the radio frequency radiation. According to calculations, this thermal effect mainly depends on the distance of radiating antenna. This effect can be seen to its extreme in the range of 300 meter from the radio frequency tower. Therefore, some guidlines must be followed such as the building, school, hospital and any social activity should be kept away from the area. Some instruments should be fixed which could absorb these harmful waves or reduce this effect.
