Default nice review

Cellular effects of extremely low frequency (ELF) electromagnetic fields.
Santini MT, Rainaldi G, Indovina PL.

Dipartimento di Ematologia, Oncologia e Medicina Molecolare, Istituto Superiore di Sanita, Viale Regina Elena, Rome. santini@iss.it

PURPOSE: The major areas of research that have characterised investigation of the impact of extremely low frequency (ELF) electromagnetic fields on living systems in the past 50 years are discussed. In particular, selected studies examining the role of these fields in cancer, their effects on immune and nerve cells, and the positive influence of these ELF fields on bone and nerve cells, wound healing and ischemia/reperfusion injury are explored. CONCLUSIONS: The literature indicates that there is still no general agreement on the exact biological detrimental effects of ELF fields, on the physical mechanisms that may be behind these effects or on the extent to which these effects may be harmful to humans. Nonetheless, the majority of the in vitro experimental results indicate that ELF fields induce numerous types of changes in cells. Whether or not the perturbations observed at the cellular level can be directly extrapolated to negative effects in humans is still unknown. However, the myriad of effects that ELF fields have on biological systems should not be ignored when evaluating risk to humans from these fields and, consequently, in passing appropriate legislation to safeguard both the general public and professionally-exposed workers. With regard to the positive effects of these fields, the possibility of testing further their efficacy in therapeutic protocols should also not be overlooked.

Default Read this review entirely - ask the authors for the paper

I have red this review and have to share positive and negative finding from the paper.
The title is incorrectly pointing on “cellular effects of EMF”. It represent an attempt to summarize some effects observed when experiments and clinical trial data on cancer, immune system, nerve system were reported. This paper concludes with a section on use of EMF for therapy.
It is well understood that in such review not all publication could be included. However it is not acceptable that some basic papers in all direction of the paper are missing.
On the other hand, I strongly recommend the paper to everybody interested in studying the interactions between EMF and immune system. There are number of papers from the 1980’s and 1990’s which today are not often discussed. These papers would lead the readers to significant and important information.
Shortly, write to Maria Santini at santini@iss.it and she will be pleased to furnish you with a copy of the paper. I received her response within 24 hours.
