The "costs" of technologies

The “costs” of technologies

The continuous development of new technologies, mobile phones, and computers fully answers our need of a fast communication and our necessity of doing business all over the world. These tools have really eased our lives, but what are their costs? In December 2005, the World Health Organisation...
electrosensitivity

Electrosensitivity, we can now see movement

Can the "invisible patients" infected by chemicals and electrosmog finally hope to get off the side streets? Electrosensitivity does indeed exist and the last political defeat is a statute from the labour union inspecting on the condition of workers which has just been brought forward in Senate. As...
magnetic field

Tumors, relation to the electricity magnetic field proved.

The presence of a cause-and-effect linkage between cancer and interferences with low frequency magnetic field has been believed to exist for years however science has always failed in proving this relation. But a new study seems to give clarity to this concern: a 50Hz electricity magnetic field...

Safety standards on the exposure to low frequency magnetic fields

W hy are there strict limits imposed by national and international regulations on human exposure to low frequency magnetic fields? To date, regulations on human exposure to low frequency magnetic field are based only on acute effects (short-term effects). The limits imposed are quite high...
electro-magnetic hypersensivity

What is Electro-magnetic hypersensitivity? Is it a disease?

A re there any possible negative health effects for those people who are exposed (not due to professional reasons) to low frequency magnetic fields? In 2008 was published an epidemiological study on residential exposure to magnetic fields. Scientists analysed the risk of death from...
Magnetic induction

What is magnetic induction?

M agnetic induction is a physical phenomenon which causes a magnetic field to produce a potential difference from one end of a conductor to the other end thus generating an electrical current inside the latter (if it is a closed circuit). Therefore, magnetic induction shows itself every time an...
exposure to low frequency magnetic fields

Causal relationship between exposure to low frequency magnetic fields and leukaemia among children

I s there a causal relationship between children exposure to low frequency magnetic fields and leukaemia? In 1979, for the first time, Dr. Nancy Wertheimer and Dr. Leeper, two American researchers, highlighted the causal relationship between the exposure to extremely low frequency (ELF) magnetic...
range of low frequency magnetic field

What is the range of frequency of low frequency magnetic field?

T he magnetic field produced by electrical wiring, electrical systems and other equipments connected to the production, transmission, distribution and use of electricity, is called alternate magnetic field since it is the product of alternate current (such as domestic current) that varies...
effects of exposure to low magnetic fields

Effects of human exposure to a low frequency magnetic field

What are the most common sources of low frequency magnetic fields? There are many sources of low frequency magnetic fields which are nowaday very common and wide spread both outside and inside our houses. For example, on the outside we can find overhead and underground power lines, power...
