EMF exposures exist in the home and workplace as a result of electrical equipment and building wiring, and not only as a result of nearby power lines.
This booklet explains the basic principles of EMF, provides an overview of the results from major research studies, and summarizes conclusions from the various expert review panels that have examined the scientific evidence regarding exposure to EMF and health effects. It includes the findings and recommendations of major EMF research review efforts including those of the EMF RAPID Program and the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer.
