Abstract
Introduction: Some occupational case-control and cohort studies have reported increased risks of brain cancer and leukemia associated with employment in jobs linked with exposures to magnetic or electric fields. In early studies, these associations were based on only electrical-related jobs; however, various attempts have been made to quantify EMF exposure in recent epidemiological investigations (2). In this report, we present a new approach to quantify level of exposures to EMF in various ranges of frequencies, such as static magnetic fields (SMF: < 3 Hz), extremely low frequencies (ELF: 3-3,000 Hz), video display units (VDU: 15-30 KHz), and radio frequencies (RF: 30 KHz-300GHz).
