Abstract: Humans are exposed to a complex mix of man-made electric and magnetic fields (MFs) at many different frequencies, at home and at work. Epidemiological studies indicate that there is a positive relationship between residential/domestic and occupational exposure to extremely low frequency electromagnetic fields and some types of cancer, although some other studies indicate no relationship. In this review, after an introduction on the MF definition and a description of natural/anthropogenic sources, the epidemiol… Show more

“…However, high levels of ROS are closely associated with oxidative stress, aging, and brain dysfunction [ 43 , 44 , 45 ]. Similar results regarding increased ROS production and oxidative stress were also shown in many animal studies of the biological effects of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) from power systems [ 67 , 68 ]. These studies indicate that HMF or EMF may contribute to the production of ROS and cause oxidative stress, which could further trigger or enhance neurodevelopmental abnormalities or cancer.…”

“…This could also be pertinent for the quest of life on other planets without a magnetic field, including Mars 634,635 . In a similar vein, nowadays almost all species are exposed to magnetic fields at different intensities and frequencies originated by manufactured devices 67,351,[636][637][638][639][640] . The effects of magnetic fields on physiological functions are inevitable and could be detrimental.…”
