  Abstract. The relation between exposure to electric and magnetic fields in the home, as assessed by measurements, wiring configuration, and self-reported appliance use, and risk of leukemia was investigated in a case-control study among children from birth to age 10 years in Los Angeles County, California.   Numerous epidemiologic studies and comprehensive reviews of the scientific literature have evaluated possible associations between exposure to ELF magnetic fields and risk of cancer in children .

A nationwide case-control study of childhood leukaemia in New Zealand included measurements of electric and magnetic fields in children's homes. There was no significant association between leukaemia and the time-weighted average of the 50 Hz magnetic or electric fields in the bedroom and living (or daytime) room by: Results of investigations of a possible link between childhood leukemia and residential exposures to magnetic fields at a frequency of 50 to 60 Hz from nearby power lines have been inconsistent. 1 Cited by:

The authors concluded that an association between residential exposure to electromagnetic fields and childhood leukemia might exist. Limitations (acc. to author) Selection bias, exposure misclassification, and confounders in the individual studies cannot be ruled out. Possible Health Effects of Exposure to Residential Electric and Magnetic Fields also discusses the tools available to measure exposure, common types of exposures, and what is known about the effects of exposure. The committee looks at correlations between EMF exposure and carcinogenesis, mutagenesis, neurobehavioral effects, reproductive and Author: Division on Earth.

The relation between exposure to electric and magnetic fields in the home, as assessed by measurements, wiring configuration, and self-reported appliance use, and risk of leukemia was investigated in a case-control study among children from birth to age 10 years in Los Angeles County, by: Numerous epidemiologic studies have reported associations between measures of power-line electric or magnetic fields (EMFs) and childhood leukemia.

The basis for such associations remains unexplained. In children, acute lymphoblastic leukemia represents approximately three-quarters of all U.S. leukemia Cited by: Childhood leukemia and residential exposure to weak extremely low frequency magnetic fields.

M Feychting and A Ahlbom Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, by: Technical Report: Exposure to residential electric and magnetic fields and risk of childhood leukemia. A study was conducted to examine the relationship between home exposure to electric and magnetic fields, and the development of childhood leukemia.

Interviews were conducted with the parents of children diagnosed with leukemia between and and. Childhood leukaemia and high average exposures to magnetic fields are both quite rare.

Thus, a major challenge in EMF epidemiology is the small number of highly exposed cases. Previous studies found associations between childhood leukemia and surrogate indicators of exposure to magnetic fields (the power-line classification scheme known as “wire coding Cited by: In a case-control study of childhood leukemia in relation to exposure to power-frequency electric and magnetic fields (EMF), children resident in five Canadian provinces who were diagnosed at.

The committee examines what is known about three kinds of health effects associated with EMF: cancer, primarily childhood leukemia; reproduction and development; and neurobiological effects.

This book provides a detailed discussion of hazard identification, dose-response assessment, exposure assessment, and risk characterization for each. Can the electric and magnetic fields (EMF) to which people are routinely exposed cause health effects. Child Leukemia Again Linked to Power Lines.

including 9, children with leukemia, only 5% of the exposure to magnetic fields comes from high voltage pylons. So if this is a hazard Author: Daniel J. Denoon. Extremely-low-frequency (ELF) magnetic fields are classified as ‘possibly carcinogenic to humans (group 2B)' on the basis of ‘limited evidence in humans for the carcinogenicity of ELF magnetic fields in relation to childhood leukaemia' (IARC Working Group on the Evaluation of Carcinogenic Risks to Humans,p ).Cited by: Residential Electric-and Magnetic-Field Exposure and Childhood Leukemia: Results: Possible Health Effects of Exposure to Residential Electric and Magnetic Fields also discusses the tools available to measure exposure, common types of exposures, and what is known about the effects of exposure.

The committee looks at correlations. PURPOSE: Studies have reported an increased risk of childhood leukemia associated with exposure to magnetic fields. We conducted a large records-based case-control study of childhood leukemia risk and exposure to magnetic fields from power lines in by: 8.

Residential exposure to electromagnetic fields and childhood leukaemia Bulletin of the World Health Organization,77 (11) became not significant (P. Aim of study (acc. to author) The relation between exposure to residential electric and magnetic fields and the risk of childhood leukemia was investigated in a case-control study in California, USA.

As far back aschildhood leukaemia was associated with exposure to residential electromagnetic fields. InAnders Ahlbom analysed this and subsequent research and concluded that there was sufficient scientific evidence to confirm the doubling in incidence for childhood leukaemia at power frequency magnetic fields of µT and above.

Although the study of Linet et al. () is often cited as failing to support the hypothesis of an association between residential exposure to magnetic fields and childhood leukemia [it was also cited by Belson et al.

() ], it actually was one of the most important supporters of an association in the pooled analyses and contributed the greatest number of highly exposed by: 1. Magnetic fields don’t have sufficient energy to damage cells and thereby cause cancer. At present there is no clear biological explanation for the possible increase in childhood leukaemia from.

Numerous epidemiologic studies have reported associations between measures of power-line electric or magnetic fields (EMFs) and childhood leukemia. The basis for such associations remains unexplained.

The Working Group classified ELF-EMFs as “possibly carcinogenic to humans,” based on limited evidence from human studies in relation to childhood leukemia.

Static electric and magnetic fields and extremely low frequency electric fields were determined “not. Magnetic fields and childhood leukaemia – candidate mechanistic pathways multiple new sources of artificial electric and magnetic fields have appeared with the potential to affect magnetosensory systems or other aspects 11 Zhao L et al.

Magnetic fields exposure and childhood leukemia risk: a meta-analysis based on 11, cases and. Objectives: To evaluate the risk of childhood leukemia in relation to residential electric and magnetic field (EMF) exposures.

Methods: A case control study based on 88 cases and controls used different assessment methods to determine EMF exposure in the child's current residence.

Cases comprised incident leukemias diagnosed at 0–14 years of age between – from a Cited by: Exposure to residential EMF and risk of childhood leukemia Responsibility: prepared by University of Southern California ; principal investigators, J.M. Peters [and others].
