THz radiation does affect skin, through absorption shock-waves

This post was originally published on this site

Researches in Japan have discovered a mechanism by which THz radiation can cause biological changes several millimetres inside humans. This kind of electromagnetic radiation, at frequencies between microwaves and x-rays, is being considered as a less-invasive alternative to x-rays for medical and security scanning, and perhaps medical therapies for skin. THz radiation, which is technically difficult …
