Updated Booklet on Electric and Magnetic Fields (EMF) and Human Health

Electric and Magnetic Fields (EMF) exposures exist in the home and workplace as
a result of electrical equipment and building wiring, and not only as a result
of nearby power lines.

This updated booklet explains the basic principles of EMF, provides an overview
of the results from major research studies, and summarizes conclusions from the
various expert review panels that have examined the scientific evidence
regarding exposure to EMF and health effects. It includes the findings and
recommendations of major EMF research review efforts including those of the EMF
RAPID Program and the World Health Organization's International Agency for
Research on Cancer. Reporters will find the new Q and A good background and
perhaps find news or feature stories in this summary of the latest information
on a subject that has concerned the public for decades.

The booklet is available on-line.
