Magnetic field exposures pose serious questions to the public. The science is not sufficiently clear or consistent to result in a consensus. Some scientists view the data as strongly suggestive and argue that if the association is true, the ubiquity of exposure may be resulting in a marked underestimation of the actual risk. Others argue that the inconsistencies in the data and the specific limitations of the studies suggest that there is no association and no reason for concern. The state of the science is such that a definitive resolution is unlikely in the next few years. In light of this uncertainty, I believe that the most prudent course of action is the prevention or limitation of exposure where feasible at limited cost and inconvenience. Be it at home or at work, prevention of exposure is simply good public health practice.
