EMF’s in the Workplace July 27, 2006Posted by healthyself in Blogroll, Brain Cancer, Cancer, Cancer Protection, EMF's, Environment, Eye Cancer, Leukemia, radiation, Tumors.
Current flowing through a conductor creates magnetic fields, which form continuous loops around the current. Everything that carries electric power produces electric and magnetic fields. This includes power lines, wiring, and electrical equipment.
It is a modern fact of life that whether we are at work, at home, or at school, we are all exposed to EMFs-electric and magnetic fields produced by the generation, transmission, and use of electricity.
Some human health studies suggest that there may be a link between exposure to EMFs and certain types of cancer, primarily leukemia and brain cancer. Some scientists doubt that this apparent connection between EMF exposure and cancer is real, because it is difficult to explain biologically and because the research results are inconsistent. Most agree that more information is needed to resolve the issue about whether or not EMFs affect human health. The U.S. government has initiated a national EMF research effort and important study results are expected in the next few years.
