Cardiovascular system

Experimental investigations on both short-term and long-term exposure to extremely low-frequency fields in the workplace or in the environment show that they are very unlikely to cause dangerous cardiovascular effects (WHO Environmental Health Criteria 238). Likewise, epidemiological studies gave no evidence of an association between extremely low-frequency electric and magnetic fields and the incidence of cardiovascular diseases (Kheifets, L. et al. 2007).
