||The effect of electromagnetic fields
||Umwelteinflüsse durch elektromagnetische Felder [in German]|
||1980, Vol.101, No.24, p.1310-1312. Illus. 26 ref.
||The effects of 50Hz electromagnetic fields on man are studied (painful discharges, biological effects) and the contradictory results of other research are compared. This study under well defined conditions did not indicate any health effects. Examination of persons exposed for over 20 years to high intensity fields in the vicinity of high-voltage lines (380kV) did not reveal any harmful or sentisiting effects of electromagnetic fields. The electric and magnetic fields produced by electricity distribution networks of 420kV or even 800kV should not constitute a health hazard.
