Summary of the situation report bulletin (2/2023) published online

As mentioned in my previous bulletins, the European Commission has asked the Scientific Committee on Health, Environmental and Emerging Risks (SCHEER) to produce two scientific opinions on the safety of electromagnetic fields (Opinion I and II). Further information on this process is available on SCHEER’s website.

In November 2023, SCHEER launched a public consultation on the Preliminary Opinion on potential health effects of exposure to low frequencies. The exact name of the Opinion published by SCHEER is “Potential health effects of exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF): Update with regard to frequencies between 1Hz and 100kHz”. Interested stakeholders were invited to submit their comments online by January 2, 2024.

Once again, I have found some fascinating scientific articles for this new bulletin. The bulletin starts with an article examining exposure, including children’s, to magnetic fields in France. The article on childhood leukemia discusses the effects of magnetic fields but also that of pesticides.

Hope you enjoy reading this summary in English!
