The human being is a bioelectrical organism and is affected by artificial electric and magnetic fields.
Due to the effect of low frequency MF, the production of the hormone called melatonin is altered. Melatonin plays an important role in human biorhythms, in reproduction, growth and the immune system. The direct consequences of a decrease in its production can be sleep disorders, psychological disorders -depressions- and degenerative diseases -Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s-.
Since 2002, low frequency MF are considered by the World Health Organization (WHO) as possible human carcinogens -group 2B-.
In 2015, the Scientific Committee on Health, Environmental and Emerging Risks (SCHEER) indicated that, in general, epidemiological studies of low frequency fields show a higher risk of childhood leukemia with average daily exposures of MF greater than 0.3-0.4 μT.
More recent studies have shown a direct relationship between MF and miscarriage. For instance, a 2017 study by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIH) has found that “women exposed to higher MF levels had almost three times the risk of miscarriage than those with lower MF exposure”.
