Electricity contributes significantly to improvement of the quality of life and has been an essential ally of industrial, technological, economic and medical development over the last decades. Nonetheless, the public has expressed fears with regard to their exposure to electric and magnetic fields generated by AC current.
This site pursues three goals :
- To present the research activities of the Belgian experts in the Belgian BioElectroMagnetics Group (BBEMG);
- To support a better understanding of the electromagnetic fields and their possible effects on health;
- To propose a quality educational and documentation tool that integrates the required references for studying the characteristics of 50 Hz electric and magnetic fields.
