Abstract:

The classification of extremely low-frequency magnetic fields by the International Agency for Research on Cancer in the group of ‘possible human carcinogens’ (group 2B) is essentially based on epidemiologic evidence showing an association between MF exposures and childhood leukaemia. Despite many in vitro and in vivo investigations, there is no established causal relationship yet. However, human cytogenetic biomonitoring studies that were conducted in the past show predominantly positive results, i.e. increased cytogenetic damage in peripheral blood lymphocytes or buccal cells of ELF-MF-exp…
