Abstract

The authors observed changes in the biochemical properties of eukaryotic cells exposed to an ac magnetic field by infrared scanning near-field optical microscopy. They specifically investigated the changes in the distribution of the inner chemical functional groups and in the cell morphology induced by a 24 h exposure to a 1 mT (rms), 50 Hz sinusoidal magnetic field in a temperature-regulated solenoid. These results accentuate the crucial questions-raised by several recent studies-about the impact of low-frequency electromagnetic field on human cells.
