    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    PRLog (Press Release) – Feb. 25, 2013 – A review of 42 studies of occupational exposure to electric and magnetic fields (MF) and neurodegenerative diseases found “moderately increased risk” for Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

    Although little evidence was found for other neurodegenerative diseases including dementia and multiple sclerosis, few studies had been conducted on these diseases.

    The paper concludes, “We observed moderate associations between indicators of occupational MF exposure … and AD,” but the Abstract states, “We found weak associations for occupational MF exposure proxies with AD.”
