Electromagnetic fields and ionizing radiation

Potential health effects from exposure to electromagnetic fields have been extensively discussed in society during several decades. At IMM research is performed to increase the scientific knowledge in the area and includes possible health effects from exposure associated with e.g. mobile telecommunication and power lines. Focus is on the risk of chronic diseases including e.g. such as cancer and neurodegenerative disease, but includes also acute effects such as headaches, sleep disturbance and other symptoms.
