Exposure to Magnetic Fields or Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) electromagnetic fields (EMFs) increases the risk of cancer. This was first discovered in 1979 with increased rates of leukemia in children living near power cables and distribution boxes and transformers.
Ways of reducing exposure to ELF:
Avoid being close to:

Magnetic fields are also present in Wifi and cellphone exposure
MRI Scanners and specific electrosensitivity symptoms
Magnetic Resonance Imaging scanners can cause electrosensitivity symptoms in two ways:
(1) ES effects in the person being scanned; and
(2) Induced currents.
(1) ES effects in the person being scanned
These ES symptoms may be immediate, such as a headache or feeling very hot, or delayed and long-term. The latter often involve neural damage resulting in feeling burned or having burn-like rashes on the skin. Areas most often effected include the arms, hands, face, eyes, neck, legs and feet. In addition the person may feel ill, sick and with flu-like symptoms, or with a fixed or 'blurred' mind. These burn-like rashes can last many months or years and may become worse in stronger radiation.
These effects occur very rarely and are sometimes the result of incorrect settings on the MRI scanner.
Some websites cover primarily heating burns rather than essentially non-thermal RFR efffects:
(2) Induced currents
Magnetic Resonance Imaging scanners produce very high magnetic fields which induce electric fields in people passing through them. These induced electric currents can cause specific electrosensitivity symptoms.
For patients this is rarely a problem so long as they move slowly, especially when the benefits of diagnosis can be enormous.
For operators who work much of the time in the vicinity of MRI scanners this can be a problem. Many studies show specific electrosensitivity symptoms among such workers.
One study (Zanotti G et al, 2015) reported:
Studies show that a few workers are hyper-sensitive and that their symptoms can last longer or become debilitating.
The advice usually given is to walk slowly near the MRI scanner, avoid all quick movements, and keep as far away for as long as possible.
Other biophysical changes, apart from vertigo, metallic tastes and cognitive effects, include bone density and vitamin D effects, accidents after work, and DNA damage.
