This chapter deals with the epidemiological reports, which associates exposure to magnetic field and the risk of fatal diseases such as brain cancer, leukemia, breast cancer, depression and miscarriage. In addition to exposure to magnetic field associated with high voltage transmission lines, possible relationship between health hazard and exposure to residential magnetic field such as electric blanket, hair dryer, toaster and many more have also been discussed.

Occupational and non-occupational exposure to magnetic field and how an office worker’s health may be in danger by sitting near to some office equipment have been studied.

Finally, a relation between central nervous system cancer and environmental exposure has been established. This study also establishes a possible relation between modern equipments and heart attack.
