One More Study Showing No Biological Effect of Magnetic Field ExposureAugust 3rd, 2012
As this report states: “The possible effects on human health of exposure to extremely low–frequency magnetic fields produced by every electrical power source and appliance at 50–60 Hz has been a topic of heated debate for more than 2 decades.” To my mind (and in accordance with the fundamental physics involved), the lack of evidence of a problem after more than 2 decades of research is a pretty clear indication there isn’t a significant problem. This particular study looked at the levels of heat-shock protein 60, a molecule released in response to environmental stress. Their magnetic field generator would not allow the experiment to be fit in a standard laboratory incubator, but it did allow for exposure to high magnetic fields. And—what a surprise!—there was no measurable effect.
