Filippini, T., Hatch, E.E. & Vinceti, M. 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...
