low-frequency electromagnetic fields health exposure
Project description

This study aims to identify and interpret evidence-based international review reports on
health effects of extremely low-frequency electromagnetic fields - at either acute, subacute or chronic exposure - and interpret them in terms of methodology used and results. In addition, specific attention should be paid to possible health effects in the vicinity of extremely low-frequency electromagnetic fields, the occurrence or non-occurrence of clusters of cases around high-voltage lines, evolution of pathologies associated with extremely low-frequency electromagnetic fields and results of several large studies and reports.
draw conclusions regarding biological and health effects
This study aims to map the scientificeevi dence for biological and health effects of extremely low-frequency non-ionising radiation by listing key international review reports, identifying differences and similarities, identifying gaps and deriving general conclusions.
