Título Effect of electric fields on the human body
Título original Wirkung elektrischer Felder auf den Organismus [en alemán]
Información bibliográfica Medizinisch-technischer Bericht 1979, Institut zur Erforschung elektrischer Unfälle, Oberländer Ufer 130, 5000 Köln 51, Germany (Fed.Rep.), 1979. 39p. Illus. 10 ref.
Resumen Report on the results of animal experiments to ascertain the possible harmful effects of electric fields (especially near overhead lines and high voltage cables) on the body. Data on the propagation of an alternating electric field, the intensity of the field at the surface of, and inside the human body; description of the methods used for experiments on rats and cats. The influence of electric fields (50Hz, 60-80kV/m) on the body was determined by continuous measurement of the electrical activity of the heart, respiratory rate, arterial blood pressure, electrical activity of the brain, and temperature. The results, which are shown in diagrams and tables, show no apparent change due to the electric field, except for some emotive reactions probably due to the vibration of the animals' fur.
