    Biological therapy is a form of treatment that uses portions of the body's natural immune system to treat a disease. Biological therapy is also used to protect the body from some of the side effects of certain treatments. Biological therapy often involves the use of substances called biological . The Sixth International Arnold Rikli Symposium on the Biologic Effects of Light was held in Boston, Massachusetts from June 16th – 18th, The goal of this Symposium was to focus on the very popular practice of tanning either by sunlight or by artificial light .

    However, we consider it too early to precisely gauge the effects of artificial night lighting on other taxa found in light-polluted environments or provide specific management recommendations. Biological effects of light It is known that light is used not only for the acquisition of visual information but that it also has a significant impact on many of the functions of the body. The effect of light on biological rhythm depends, among other things, on the intensity, duration, time of day, and the spatial distribution of light.

    Bioelectromagnetics, also known as bioelectromagnetism, is the study of the interaction between electromagnetic fields and biological entities. Areas of study include electrical or electromagnetic .   Pharmacological effects of drugs (i.e. their effects on cells, organs and systems) are, in principle, simple to measure in animals, and often also in humans. We can measure effects on blood .
