Exposure to extremely low frequency magnetic fields (ELF-MF) has been identified as one of the potential environmental risk factors for Alzheimer's disease (AD). However, this is far from being established. So far there is no experimental evidence supporting this alleged association. We have performed an in vitro cytogenetic laboratory investigation to explore the plausibility of such association. Our investigation was based on possible similarities found in cells from AD patients and in cells exposed to ELF-MF. We especially found that 50  Hz ELF-MF increase the frequency of cells with…
