Abstract This collection of papers provides information on the health effects of electric and magnetic fields. Individual papers concern: (1) an introduction to power-frequency electric and magnetic fields; (2) epidemiologic studies of electric and magnetic fields and cancer; (3) biologically-based epidemiologic studies of electric power and cancer; (4) neurobehavioural effects of power-frequency electromagnetic fields; (5) a review of epidemiologic studies concerning adverse human reproductive outcomes and electromagnetic field exposures; (6) assessing human exposure to power-frequency electric and magnetic fields.
