Influence of electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields on the circadian system – current stage of knowledge

Abstrakt

One of the side effects of each electrical device work is the electromagnetic field generated near its workplace. All organisms, including humans, are exposed daily to the influence of different types of this field, characterized by various physical parameters. Therefore, it is important to accurately determine the effects of an electromagnetic field on the physiological and pathological processes occurring in cells, tissues and organs. Numerous epidemiological and experimental data suggest that the extremely low frequency magnetic field generated by electrical transmission lines and electrically-powered devices as well as the high frequencies electromagnetic radiation emitted by electronic devices have a potentially negative impact on the circadian system. On the other hand, several studies have found no influence of these fields on chronobiological parameters. According to the current state of knowledge, some previously proposed hypotheses, including one concerning the key role of melatonin secretion disruption in pathogenesis of electromagnetic-field induced diseases, need to be revised. This article reviews the data on the effect of electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields on melatonin and cortisol rhythms - two major markers of the circadian system as well as on sleep. It also provides the basic information about the nature, classification, parameters and sources of these fields.
