Resumen This report reviews epidemiological and laboratory studies relevant to the possible adverse health effects of electromagnetic emissions from visual display units (VDUs). The report concludes: animal and epidemiological studies offer no support to reports of increased spontaneous abortion rates nor of an increased proportion of congenital malformations in women using VDUs during pregnancy; skin diseases do not appear to be caused by electromagnetic fields from VDUs, although existing conditions may be aggravated; there is no evidence that VDU work results in a disposition to the formation of cataracts. A supplementary report reviews studies on electromagnetic fields and the risk of cancer.
