femu systematic review on electrosensitivity

Posted on 10/30/19

The Journal Environmental Health has published a systematic review conducted by femu and NTNU (Norwegian University of Science and Technology) entitled: "Methodological limitations in experimental studies on symptom development in individuals with idiopathic environmental intolerance attributed to electromagnetic fields (IEI-EMF) – a systematic review". The aim of this systematic review was to evaluate methodological limitations in experimental studies on symptom development in IEI-EMF individuals that might have fostered false positive or false negative results. In many of the 28 included studies, methodological limitations were identified that might have either fostered false or masked real effects of exposure. Overall, the evidence pointed towards no effect of exposure. If further experimental studies are conducted, they should preferably be performed at the individual level and they should minimize the risk of bias in study design.
