    Abstract :

    The 20th century witnessed an explosion of technological applications that rely on electricity and thus produce electromagnetic fields. And there will be even more of these innovative technologies in the 21st century. We cannot avoid this, nor would we wish to, because technology makes our lives healthier, wealthier and safer – it is a major contributor to the economic and social progress that enhances our quality of life. However, while electric fields have been a vital part of our daily life for over a century now, and have not shown clear evidence of ill effects on health, they are becoming more pervasive. This is seen in the massive growth in the use of mobile telephones – there are 1.6 billion in use today in the world – each one with its own electromagnetic field. This is a subject of growing concern to Europe’s citizens who are unsure if mobile telephones are safe for themselves and their children. While there is no proven evidence that very weak electric and magnetic fields can affect our health, we have a duty to be sure of this, so that the public and regulators can make informed decisions about their use. This paper yields out the research into the potential health effects of long-term exposure to electromagnetic fields. Because this research is looking for weak effects that could accumulate over a long time period, actions at the Human level are particularly effective: coordinating new research based on shared knowledge and building co-operation between widespread centers of expertise.
