Children's EMF Research Agenda
Static magnetic fields were not specifically addressed at the Workshop. It was recognized, however, that there is also a need to address childhood susceptibility to static magnetic fields because of both developing technologies like magnetic levitation transportation and the ever-increasing use of magnetic resonance imaging techniques. This led to the following recommendation:
- Future laboratory studies of static magnetic fields should consider the effects of prenatal and early postnatal exposures in addition to those of adult exposure. High Priority
Rationale: There are few studies of the effects of prenatal and early postnatal exposure, particularly to very intense magnetic fields (>1 T).
