Mol Psychiatry. 2013 Jul;18(7):751-7. doi: 10.1038/mp.2013.70. Epub 2013 May 28. Abstract Humans and other organisms have adapted to a consistent and predictable 24-h solar cycle, but over the past ~130 years the widespread adoption of electric light has transformed our environment. Instead of aligning behavioral and physiological processes to the natural solar cycle, individuals respond to...

Abstract Transl Psychiatry. 2017 Jan; 7(1): e1017. Published online 2017 Jan 31. doi: 10.1038/tp.2016.262 Temporal organization of physiology is critical for human health. In the past, humans experienced predictable periods of daily light and dark driven by the solar day, which allowed for entrainment of intrinsic circadian rhythms to the environmental light–dark cycles. Since the adoption...

https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/15368378.2018.1545665 ABSTRACT Exposure to extremely low-frequency electromagnetic fields (ELF-EMF) is inevitable in some industries. There are concerns about the possible effects of this exposure. The present study aimed to investigate the effect of chronic exposure to extremely low-frequency electromagnetic fields on sleep quality, stress, depression and anxiety among power plant workers. In this cross-sectional study,...
