Asamblea Parlamentaria del Consejo de Europa: The potential dangers of electromagnetic fields and their effect on the environment
Report1
Committee on the Environment, Agriculture and Local and Regional Affairs
Rapporteur: Mr Jean HUSS, Luxembourg, Socialist Group

Summary
The potential health effects of the very low frequency of electromagnetic fields surrounding power lines and
electrical devices are the subject of ongoing research and a significant amount of public debate. While
electrical and electromagnetic fields in certain frequency bands have fully beneficial effects which are applied
in medicine, other non-ionising frequencies, be they sourced from extremely low frequencies, power lines or
certain high frequency waves used in the fields of radar, telecommunications and mobile telephony, appear
to have more or less potentially harmful, non-thermal, biological effects on plants, insects and animals, as
well as the human body when exposed to levels that are below the official threshold values.
One must respect the precautionary principle and revise the current threshold values; waiting for high levels
of scientific and clinical proof can lead to very high health and economic costs, as was the case in the past
with asbestos, leaded petrol and tobacco.
