||The rapid development of industrial and medical technologies based on static magnetic fields has caused an increase in human exposures to such fields and given rise to a large number of studies regarding their health effects. As part of the "Environmental Health Criteria" series, WHO published a monograph in 2006 on static magnetic fields. This document, which reviews reported biological effects of exposures to static magnetic fields, constitutes the main source of scientific data used for drawing up the present guidelines.
