There is considerable concern about potential detrimental health effects associated with exposure to environmentally relevant magnetic fields. One specific concern relates to potential effects of magnetic field (MF) exposure on reproduction and development. Consequently, an in vitro teratogenesis (developmental toxicity) assay employing embryonic Drosophila cells has been used to determine whether exposure to a 60-Hz MF of 100 microT for 16-18 hr is itself teratogenic and whether such an… CONTINUE READING
