||Future needs of occupational epidemiology of extremely low frequency electric and magnetic fields: Review and recommendations
||Feb. 2009, Vol.66, No.2, p.72-80. Illus. 104 ref.
||Occupational epidemiological literature on the health effects of extremely low frequency electric and magnetic fields (EMF) encompasses a large number of studies that have addressed various health outcomes, including cancers, cardiovascular disease, depression, suicide and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Extensive epidemiological research conducted during the past 20 years on occupational EMF exposure does not indicate strong or consistent associations with cancer or any other health outcomes. Inconsistent results may be attributable to numerous shortcomings in the studies, most notably in exposure assessment.
