Recent concerns over the possible hazards of electrical and magnetic fields in the home and workplace are comprehensively addressed within this book. The chapters contain detailed research on the biological effects of electric and magnetic fields, and evidence for and against any interaction of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and biological systems. The two volumes cover: the relative risk of exposure to EMFs; putative behavioral and neural effects of EMFs; and, EMF effects on cells.
