    Evidences suggest that there are few consistent effects, other than the well-established perceptual effects, that are attributable to exposure to low-intensity electric and magnetic fields (EMF) at frequencies < 100 kHz. No other categorical evidence links EMF exposure to pathological and developmental effects as well as effects on any stage of carcinogenesis in mammals. The well-established effects of RF radiation, on the other hand, much resembles the absorption of heat. Pulsed RF radiation may cause specific behavioral effects as a result of audition of the field but this is yet to be established.
