Alzheimer's Disease and Exposure to Electromagnetic Fields

EMR Australia - Wednesday, June 11, 2008

A review of published research suggests that occupational exposure to electromagnetic fields may lead to Alzheimer’s Disease.

A Garcia and colleagues from Spain’s University of Valencia reviewed 14 studies on Alzheimer’s Disease and electromagnetic fields. They found that the case-control studies showed that exposed workers had more than double the risk of the disease, whereas cohort studies found 1.6 times the risk, with double the risk for exposed men. The researchers concluded that, “Available epidemiological evidence suggests an association between occupational exposure to ELF-EMF and AD [Alzheimer’s Disease].”
