Removal of the local geomagnetic field affects reproductive growth in Arabidopsis.
The influence of the geomagnetic field-removed environment on Arabidopsis growth was investigated by cultivation of the plants in a near-null magnetic field and local geomagnetic field (45 µT) for the whole growth period under laboratory conditions. The biomass accumulation of plants in the near-nul...
Numerical evaluation of currents induced in a worker by ELF non-uniform electric fields in high voltage substations and comparison with expe...
We found that the relationship between the external electric field strength and the contact current obtained by calculation is in good agreement with previous measurements. Calculated results show that the contact currents largely depend on the distance, and that the induced electric fields in the t...
Chronic exposure to an extremely low-frequency magnetic field induces depression-like behavior and corticosterone secretion without enhancem...
We investigated whether chronic ELF-MF exposure (intensity, 3 mT; total exposure, 200 h) affected emotional behavior and corticosterone synthesis in mice. ELF-MF-treated mice showed a significant increase in total immobility time in a forced swim test and showed latency to enter the light box in a l...
Therapeutic effects of whole-body devices applying pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF): A systematic literature review
We conducted a systematic review of trials investigating the therapeutic effects of low-frequency PEMF devices. We were interested in all health outcomes addressed so far in randomized, sham-controlled, double-blind trials. In total, 11 trials were identified. They were focused on osteoarthritis of...
Enhanced absorption of millimeter wave energy in murine subcutaneous blood vessels.
We used two types of models: (1) a rectangular block of multilayer tissue with blood vessels traversing the fat layer and (2) cylindrical models with circular and elliptical cross-sections simulating the real geometry of murine limbs. We found that the specific absorption rate (SAR) in blood vessels...
Deprotonation of glutamic acid induced by weak magnetic field: an FTIR-ATR study.
We investigated the influence of ELF-EMF on glutamic acid solutions using Fourier transform infrared-attenuated total reflectance (FTIR-ATR) spectra. Samples were exposed for 10, 20, or 30 min to a weak EMF generated by Helmoltz coils, and then placed in a spectrometer. After exposure, those solut...
Occupational exposure to electric fields and induced currents associated with 400 kV substation tasks from different service platforms.
We compared the average value from all cases in the same substation. In the future it is important to pay attention to the fact that the action and limit values of the EU Directive differ significantly. It is also important to take into account that generally, the workers' exposure to the electric f...
Effects of homogeneous and inhomogeneous static magnetic fields combined with gamma radiation on DNA and DNA repair.
The aim of this study was to reveal whether static magnetic fields (SMFs) influence the repair of radiation-damaged DNA on leukocytes or has any effect on DNA. After 4 Gy of (60)Co-gamma irradiation, some of the samples were exposed to inhomogeneous SMFs with a lateral magnetic flux density gradient...
Micronuclei in the blood and bone marrow cells of mice exposed to specific complex time-varying pulsed magnetic fields.
For 8 weeks, adult CD-1 male mice were continuously exposed to complex time-varying pulsed magnetic fields (PMF) generated in the horizontal direction by a set of square Helmholtz coils. The PMF were <1000 Hz and delivered at a peak flux density of 1 mT. Sham-exposed mice were kept in a similar expo...
Evaluation of RF electromagnetic field exposure levels from cellular base stations in Korea.
This article presents the measurement results of human exposure to CDMA800 and CDMA1800 signals at locations in Korea where the general public has expressed concern. Measurements were performed at 50 locations across the country to compare the electromagnetic field levels with the general public exp...
