Genotoxicity

Because of the sheer number of study objects and methods, an evaluation of studies on induction of DNA damage by extremely low-frequency fields is difficult. In most studies, no genotoxic effects were found. The International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) concluded in its 2010 evaluation, that the studies on the effects of extremely low-frequency fields in cells do not show any induction of genotoxicity below 50 mT (ICNIRP (2010)).

An overview of all studies on genotoxicity and 50 Hz or 60 Hz magnetic field exposure can be found here.
