Electric and magnetic fields produced by electric power systems have recently been added to the list of environmental agents that are a potential threat to public health. This paper describes peoples’ exposures to fields from power systems and other sources, reviews existing scientific evidence on the biological effects of these fields, presents a history of research support and of regulatory activity, and discusses problems and alternatives in regulatory action.
