Magnetic Fields and Miscarriage


Savitz, David A. (2002). Magnetic Fields and Miscarriage. Epidemiology, 13(1), 1-3.


Is there a link between exposure to magnetic fields and the risk of miscarriage? Past epidemiologic studies have been few and inconsistent, 1,2 but with the publication in this issue of results from two large and sophisticated studies in Northern California, 3,4 the question takes on a new level of interest. The results of the case-control study by Lee et al.3 motivated the development of a prospective cohort study by Li et al.4 to determine whether the findings of a positive association with indices of peak magnetic fields and variability could be replicated, and they were.
