Abstract

The relationship of measured residential magnetic fields and wire codes to pregnancy outcome was examined in data collected for a study of childhood cancer in Denver. Pregnancies in homes with measured fields above 0.2 microT or high wire codes were not more likely to end in miscarriage, low birth weight, or preterm delivery. Lack of data on potential confounders and small numbers of cases limit the study's conclusions.
