EMFs definitely have some effects on us as humans – but at high field levels, bigger than we usually meet in the environment.
These established effects include:
- Induced currents in the body
- They also have effects on equipment such as VDUs,
- and on pacemakers and on some other implanted medical devices
These effects are well understood and there are exposure guidelines in place to protect against these effects.
Other suggested health effects of EMFs such as cancer are not regarded as "established" effects.
