Quotes

"The survey found the highest exposure rate was only 1.5 V/m, in Saraburi province" said Mr Prawit
Sarah Williams, senior health information officer at Cancer Research UK, said: "Being able to take accurate measurements of pilots' exposure to UV light, including both UVA and UVB [which makes skin go brown], is important to help us understand more about any links to health risks, including skin and eye cancers. It's also key in highlighting whether international safe limits for exposure are being exceeded and understanding changes that could reduce excessive exposures, such as wearing sunglasses or other eye protection."
"There is absolutely no cause for concern," says Kari Schjolberg-Henriksen, a physicist at SINTEF, in a press release . "The difference between this research and similar earlier work is that we have taken into account what contributes to the magnetic fields. The rotation of the wheels themselves generates considerable magnetic fields, irrespective of vehicle type."
"There is a good deal of public concern about exposure to magnetic fields. The subject crops up regularly in the media. With the number of electric-powered vehicles increasing, this project is very relevant" says Kari Schjølberg-Henriksen, a physicist at SINTEF
