This paper outlines a brief description of the illness commonly known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) which is becoming increasingly common in modern westernised countries. While CFS has become somewhat of a catch-all’ of medical symptoms, it is still commonly diagnosed by exclusion of other diseases rather than a specific, unique symptomatology.
One feature of the disorders commonly termed CFS is a depressed immune system. This paper attempts to link the impaired immune function associated with CFS to possible chronic low-level exposure to extremely low frequency (ELF) electromagnetic fields (EMFs). The evidence includes both in vivo and in vitro studies in both human and animal systems. In particular, the recent link between ELF EMFs, melatonin and the immune system are outlined.
The authors conclude that, although the link between ELF EMFs and cellular dysfunction are far from proven, sufficient evidence exists to suggest a causal link. Lack of full scientific certainty should not be used as a reason for postponing prudent avoidance of ELF EMFs, particularly in cases where CFS has already been diagnosed.
