Prolonged exposure to magnetic fields — high voltage power lines, electric blankets and other appliances — linked to a type of childhood leukemia: Study

By Dr. Gracelyn Santos A recent sudy has found that prolonged exposure to magnetic fields is linked to childhood leukemia. Examples of sources of magnetic electromagnetic fields include high voltage power lines, electric blankets and other appliances. The Environmental Health Trust, a scientific think tank focused on public health and prevention, highlighted a recent systematic review and meta-analysis published in Reviews on Environmental Health. The reviewconcludes that prolonged exposure to magnetic field electromagnetic fields are linked to a type of childhood leukemia. Children can be exposed to magnetic fields at the levels studied in the paper when they sleep near sources such as electric blankets, … Continue reading Prolonged exposure to magnetic fields — high voltage power lines, electric blankets and other appliances — linked to a type of childhood leukemia: Study
