  • Also, the study authors acknowledged that since the research was not an experiment or a controlled trial, it does not establish a direct cause-and-effect relationship between electromagnetic waves and ALS, only a potential association. (hon.ch)
  • Energy from RF currents in conductors can radiate into space as electromagnetic waves (radio waves). (wikipedia.org)
  • Effects
  • Reproductive toxicity has been defined as the occurrence of adverse effects on the reproductive system that may result from exposure to environmental agents. (iloencyclopaedia.org)
  • Developmental toxicity has been defined as the occurrence of adverse effects on the developing organism that may result from exposure prior to conception (either parent), during pprenatal development or postnatally to the time of sexual maturation. (iloencyclopaedia.org)
  • Our discussion will not include the effects of postnatal exposures on development. (iloencyclopaedia.org)
  • Although most of the effects of erethism are neurological, some physical problems arise as well, including a decrease in physical strength, "headaches, general pain, and tremors after exposure to metallic mercury" as well as irregular heartbeat. (wikipedia.org)
  • pollution
  • In this sense, the environment is not limited to the biophysical environment (e.g. exposure to factors such as air pollution or sunlight, encountered outdoors or indoors, at home or in the workplace), but also includes lifestyle, economic and behavioral factors. (wikipedia.org)
  • currents
  • Exposure to electromagnetic fields , contact currents and induced currents through the limbs are treated separately. (emf-portal.org)
  • For this reason, in addition to the field strengths shown in the " Reference levels " table, a limit for currents through the limbs is defined in the BGV B11. (emf-portal.org)
  • É In 1976-77, we did a field study in the greater Denver area which suggested that, in fact, the homes of children who developed cancer were found unduly often near electric lines carrying high currents. (emfnews.org)
  • electrical
  • Occupational Health CEO Harri Vainio where environmental sensitivies is concerned , such as the sensitivity of the electrical and chemical sensitivity , growth in recent years. (blogspot.com)
  • Adipose tissue (fat) receives little heating by induction fields because an electrical current is not actually going through the tissues. (wikipedia.org)
  • This underscores the versatility of CNFs, which are notable for their thermal, electrical, electromagnetic shielding, and mechanical property enhancements. (wikipedia.org)
  • sources of exposure
  • Therefore, most studies focus on particular sources of exposure. (bmj.com)
  • Studies concerning specific sources of exposure relative to fetal development and pregnancy outcome have included the use of electric blankets, heated waterbeds, power lines, video display terminals, and other occupational sources. (bmj.com)
  • Detailed information on the use of occupational sources of exposure to EMF was collected as part of the INTERPHONE-INTEROCC study. (oregonstate.edu)
  • Conclusion: We have constructed a database with measurements and complementary information for the most common sources of exposure to EMF in the workplace, based on the responses to the INTERPHONE-INTEROCC study questionnaire. (oregonstate.edu)
  • occur
  • It is commonly characterized through behavioral changes such as irritability, low self-confidence, depression, apathy, shyness and timidity, and in some extreme cases with prolonged exposure to mercury vapors, delirium, personality changes and memory loss occur as a result. (wikipedia.org)
  • cumulative exposure
  • Furthermore, those in the top 30% of cumulative exposure (duration x intensity) were nearly twice as likely to develop the disease. (eurekalert.org)
  • People with the most cumulative exposure -- long periods combined with high intensity -- were nearly twice as likely to develop ALS. (hon.ch)
  • electric
  • Strong electric fields (from high voltages applied to small or pointed conductors) often produce violet-colored corona discharges in air, as well as visible sparks. (wikipedia.org)
  • context
  • Right to know", in the context of United States workplace and community environmental law, is the legal principle that the individual has the right to know the chemicals to which they may be exposed in their daily living. (wikipedia.org)
  • Vermeulen
  • This doesn't mean that folks should worry about exposure from using household appliances, Vermeulen said. (hon.ch)
  • safety
  • The results shall be communicated to the occupational physician and the health, safety and working conditions committee or, failing that, to the staff representatives and in the event of crossing the levels, workers may be given a medical examination. (blogspot.co.nz)
  • The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) within the U.S. Department of Labor is responsible for issuing and enforcing regulations covering workplace safety. (wikipedia.org)
  • study
  • The team have stressed that this study is observational - it has not proven that the fields themselves cause ALS, just that this factor is linked to a person's likelihood of developing the disease. (stopumts.nl)
  • Methods: First, a comprehensive literature search was performed for published and unpublished documents containing exposure measurements for the EMF sources identified, a priori as well as from answers of study subjects. (oregonstate.edu)
  • It seems like every time we turn around there is another study citing the dangers of EMF exposure. (myombody.com)
  • In July 1982, research epidemiologist Sam Milham of the Washington State Department of Health published the results of a study indicating that workers with high EMF exposure such as electricians and power station operators had a greater-than-expected rate of leukemia. (emfnews.org)
  • weak
  • Field modulation of cell surface chemical events indicates a major amplification of initial weak triggers associated with binding of hormones, antibodies and neurotransmitters to their specific binding sites. (myombody.com)
  • This response is enhanced by weak microwave fields, also acting at cell membranes. (myombody.com)
  • analysis
  • Lomen-Hoerth said it's too early to discount those other possible workplace exposures, since the analysis included so few people who died from ALS. (hon.ch)
  • Visualization of a good practice method In the Netherlands, the method is available to small and medium enterprises by the use of a half day workplace analysis or simple videos can be made. (wikipedia.org)
