Abstract
The document is a research strategy for electric and magnetic fields (EMF). Research discussed will provide information to allow better assessment of any health effects that might be found to be associated with EMF. The discussion is devoted to EMF in the range of 0 to 500,000 Hertz. The strategy evaluates research needs in four major areas: (1) animal and human studies to determine any possible health effects of EMF exposure; (2) investigation of biophysical mechanisms, including both physical and biological interactions, that underlie any observed effects; (3) improved assessment of human exposure to EMF, including source identification and characterization, instrumentation development, exposure measurement and modeling, EMF coupling to biological objects, and laboratory exposure systems; and (4) development of control technology to prevent and reduce human exposure to EMF.
