femu systematic review on biological effects of intermediate frequency fields

Posted on 2/7/19

The Journal Environmental Research has published a systematic review performed by femu entitled: "Systematic review on the biological effects of electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields in the intermediate frequency range (300 Hz to 1 MHz)". The aim of the review was to assess the potential biological and health effects of exposures to intermediate frequency fields. The analysis showed that the studies investigated yielded inconsistent results for most endpoints. In addition, many studies suffered from methodological limitations which lowered the credibility of the reported results. Overall, the quality of evidence for adverse effects remains inadequate for drawing a conclusion on investigated biological effects.

The project was funded by the German Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) and commissioned by the Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS), Germany (grant number 3616S82437).
