Neurodegenerative diseases in welders and other workers exposed to high levels of magnetic fields.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Previous work has suggested an increase in risk of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and Alzheimer's disease among workers exposed to extremely low-frequency magnetic fields (ELF-MF). We evaluated the relation between ELF-MF from occupational exposures and mortality from neurodegenerative diseases. METHODS The study was based on a cohort of… (More)
