Wherever there is electric power, 60-hertz (60-Hz) electric and magnetic fields (EMFs) are produced. Recently, conflicting reports have been published by government agencies about adverse health effects linked to EMFs. This paper seeks to identify the demographic and job-related factors that may explain differences among experts' perception of risk attributable to EMFs. Eighty-one participants at a bioelectromagnetics conference completed a survey on risk perceptions. Results indicated that… CONTINUE READING
