Exposure to extremely low frequency magnetic field (ELFMF) at 400 mT has been shown to induce mutations (Mutat. Res., 349: 109-114, 1996; Int. J. Radiat. Biol., 71: 75-79, 1997; and Biochem. Biophys. Res. Commun., 243: 579-584, 1998). However, whether ELFMF at low flux densities (under 1 mT) induces mutations is debatable. We investigated the effect of long-term exposure to 5 mT ELFMF at 60 Hz on mutant frequency. Chinese hamster ovary K1 (CHO-K1) cells were exposed or sham-exposed to 5 mT… CONTINUE READING
