    Many studies have dealt with the reproductive and developmental effects of exposure to power frequency electric and magnetic fi eld effects and VLF visual-display-frequency magnetic fi elds.   Some studies show a link between exposure to EMF and increased rate of Leukemia, cancer, brain tumors and other health problems. Also, there is some uncertainty remains as to the actual mechanisms responsible for these biological hazards and which type of fields magnetic or electric or both are of great concern.

    health effects from long-term exposure to IF fields are important because human exposure to such fields is increasing due to new and emerging technologies. Extremely low frequency fields (ELF fields) The previous conclusion that ELF magnetic fields are possibly carcinogenic, chiefly based on occurrence of childhood leukaemia, is still valid. The exposure limits specified in Safety Code 6 have been established based upon a thorough evaluation of the scientific literature related to the thermal and non-thermal health effects of RF fields. Health Canada scientists consider all peer-reviewed scientific studies, on an ongoing basis, and employ a weight-of-evidence approach when.

Scientific studies suggest that electric and magnetic fields are unlikely to be harmful at the levels normally found in homes, although there is some uncertainty regarding certain health effects.

Can the electric and magnetic fields to which people are routinely exposed cause health effects?This volume assesses the data and draws conclusions about the consequences of human exposure to EMF. The committee examines what is known about three kinds of health effects associated with EMF: cancer, primarily childhood leukemia; reproduction and development; and neurobiological effects.

Electric and magnetic fields (EMFs) are invisible areas of energy, often referred to as radiation, that are associated with the use of electrical power and various forms of natural and man-made lighting.

Learn the difference between Ionizing and Non-Ionizing radiation, the Electromagnetic Spectrum, and how harmful EMFs are to your health.

Possible Health Effects of Exposure to Residential Electric and Magnetic Fields also discusses the tools available to measure exposure, common types of exposures, and what is known about the effects of exposure.

The committee looks at correlations between EMF exposure and carcinogenesis, mutagenesis, neurobehavioral effects, reproductive and. Peter Sullivan, who has a master's degree in computer science with an emphasis on human-computer interaction, is the founder of Clear Light Ventures, an organization dedicated to raising awareness about the health effects of electromagnetic field (EMF) exposure.

Before founding Clear Light Ventures inhe worked for several different Silicon Valley companies, including Netflix. Because of this property, the exposure to an electromagnetic field you would receive from a power line decreases with distance. Top of Page. What You Can Do.

Public concern regarding possible health risks from residential exposures to low-strength, low-frequency electric and magnetic fields produced by power lines and the use of electric appliances has generated considerable debate among scientists and public officials.

In fact, the evolution of electric. Static electric and magnetic fields and extremely low frequency electric fields were determined “not classifiable as to their carcinogenicity to humans”. Inthe European Commission Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks reviewed electromagnetic fields in general, as well as cell phones in particular.

Electric and magnetic fields. All radiation on the electromagnetic spectrum is produced by the interactions of 2 forces, referred to as fields. Radiation has both an electric field and a magnetic field.

Electric fields are the forces acting on charged particles (parts of atoms), like electrons or protons, which cause them to move. Electric.
