Residential exposure to electromagnetic fields and risk of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: a dose–response meta-analysis. Sci Rep 11, 11939 (2021). https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-021-91349-2 Abstract Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is neurodegenerative disease characterized by a fatal prognosis and still unknown etiology. Some environmental risk factors have been suggested, including exposure to magnetic fields. Studies have...

Abstract We performed a meta-analysis to examine associations of occupational exposure to extremely-low frequency magnetic fields (ELF-MF) with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Epidemiologic studies were identified in EMBASE and MEDLINE, in reference lists and a specialist database. We included studies that reported risk estimates of ALS in association with occupational ELF-MF exposure. Summary relative risks...
