Description:

In studies regarding occupation exposure to extremly low frequent (50 - 60 Hz) electric and magnetic fields have some disorders in biologic systems been reported. In the late 60's and the beginning of the 70's, functional organ disorders in nerv, circulation, gastrointestinal and reproduction systems were shown. Since the early 80's, reports about prevalence of cancer in these groups have dominated the interest of researches. Working Life Insitute (Arbetslivsinstitutet) was responsible for the study. The investigational period reached over the years 1981 to 1995. The study base consisted of 706 new employed men. Information about healt and environment, family and children, ergonomic pressure and subjective symptomatology was gathered from questionnaires.
