Magnetic fields, cancer and train drivers

EMR Australia - Thursday, June 02, 2016

Scientists analysed health records of Swiss railway workers. They found, not only exposure to high magnetic fields, but also higher-than-normal rates of myeloid leukemia and Hodgkin’s lymphoma/Hodgkin’s disease.

Magnetic fields are generated by the flow of electricity and are present wherever electrical equipment, power lines, meter boxes and electrical wiring are found.

Action could be taken to reduce rail workers' exposure to magnetic fields, say lawyers commenting on the study.
