  1. Health effects of extremely low-frequency (50- and 60-Hz) electric and magnetic fields.

    Article - En anglais

    The new/publishing media has attempted to capitalize on or exploit the concern over health effects of electric and magnetic fields.

    This paper will provide assistance to the scientific and technical community to put the subject into perspective while the furor abates.

    The concern over the health effects of extremely low-frequency, 50-60 Hz, electric and magnetic fields is addressed.

    The voltages and currents generated with the human body are detailed.

    The values of directly applied voltages and currents that occur when a person comes into contact with energized conductors, that are hazardous to humans, are compared with the nonhazardous induced voltages and currents.
