|Abstract:||Reviews and evaluates over 550 studies in an effort to determine the effects on humans and other biological systems of exposure to static magnetic fields and to time-varying fields at extremely low frequencies. Apart from providing an overview of all documented biological effects, the book also identifies areas for further research and offers guidance for the prevention of health hazards in both the general population and specific occupations. The opening sections provide details on sources of exposure from natural magnetic fields and from man-made fields and examine data on biological effects on animals and man. The book concludes with guidance on health effects assessment, recommended exposure standards and their rationales, and suggested protective measures, including techniques that can minimize needless exposure to high intensity magnetic fields around large research facilities|
