Epidemiological studies suggest that exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) in the environment may be associated with mutagenic changes, but the relation between EMF exposure and aneuploidy has not previously been studied. Environmental EMFs apparently lack the energy necessary to function as aneugens, but the possibility exists that EMFs could influence the incidence of aneuploidy synergistically because EMFs can activate the neuroendocrine system, and ovulation and oocyte meiotic… CONTINUE READING
