EMR Literature Survey
The EMR literature survey provides monthly updates on published literature related to electromagnetic fields and health in the frequency range 0-300 GHz.
Published literature includes articles in peer-reviewed journals, scientific-body reports, fact sheets, conference proceedings etc.
The monthly updates provide references on new EMR literature. For each reference a short summary and a link to the abstract or to the full document (if freely available) is also provided. Each update also contains one or more featured articles for which commentary by ARPANSA may be provided. Updates may also contain links to external websites for further information. These links were considered useful at the time of preparation of the monthly update but ARPANSA has no control over the content or currency of information on external links. Please see the ARPANSA website disclaimer.
Explanations of the more common terms in the monthly updates are found in the glossary.
The EMR literature that is listed in the monthly updates is found by searching various databases and is not exhaustive. Find out how ARPANSA searches for new EMR literature for the monthly updates.
The intention of the EMR literature survey is to provide an update on new literature related to EMR and health that may be of interest to the general public. ARPANSA does not take responsibility for any of the content in the EMR literature and is not able to provide copies of the papers that are listed.
Australian study reports that after 30 years of mobile phone use there is no increase in the brain tumour rates.
Researchers combine results from different studies to show that parental occupational exposure to extremely low frequency magnetic fields is not associated with childhood leukaemia.
Risk assessment endorsed by the European Commission confirms the validity of the classification of extremely low frequency magnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans.
