Summary Several publications in the scientific literature have raised concern
about the individual and public health impact of adverse non-ionizing radiation
(a-NIR) from electromagnetic field (EMF) exposure emanating from certain power,
electrical and wireless devices commonly found in the home, workplace, school and
community. Despite the many challenges in establishing irrefutable scientific proof
of harm and the various gaps in elucidating the precise mechanisms of harm,
epidemiological analyses continue to suggest considerable potential for injury and
affliction as a result of a-NIR exposure. As environmental health has not been
emphasized in medical education, some clinicians are not fully aware of possible
EMF-related health problems and, as a result, manifestations of a-NIR may remain
misdiagnosed and ineffectually managed. It is important for physicians and public
health officials to be aware of the fundamental science and clinical implications of
EMF exposure. A review of the scientific literature relating to the link between
electromagnetic radiation and human health, several public health recommendations,
and four case histories are presented for consideration.
