Abstract
A number of papers dealing with the effects of modern, man-made electromagnetic fields (EMFs) on the immune system are summarized
in the present review. EMFs disturb immune function through stimulation of various allergic and inflammatory responses, as well as effects
on tissue repair processes. Such disturbances increase the risks for various diseases, including cancer. These and the EMF effects on other
biological processes (e.g. DNA damage, neurological effects, etc.) are now widely reported to occur at exposure levels significantly below
most current national and international safety limits. Obviously, biologically based exposure standards are needed to prevent disruption of
normal body processes and potential adverse health effects of chronic exposure.
Based on this review, as well as the reviews in the recent Bioinitiative Report [http://www.bioinitiative.org/] [C.F. Blackman, M. Blank, M.
Kundi, C. Sage, D.O. Carpenter, Z. Davanipour, D. Gee, L. Hardell, O. Johansson, H. Lai, K.H. Mild, A. Sage, E.L. Sobel, Z. Xu, G. Chen,
The Bioinitiative Report-A Rationale for a Biologically-based Public Exposure Standard for Electromagnetic Fields (ELF and RF), 2007)],
it must be concluded that the existing public safety limits are inadequate to protect public health, and that new public safety limits, as well as
limits on further deployment of untested technologies, are warranted.
