Other applications

Apart from the widespread sources of electric and magnetic fields as, e.g., household appliances and electric installations as well as power supply installations there are some other very special applications available, which cause static or low frequency fields in their environments, e.g., electronic article surveillance systems (EAS) or medical applications. The effects of "magnetic remedies" sold without a prescription are scientifically dubious. Wearing small permanent magnets, such as magnetic name tags is, as a rule, not harmful to health.
