An analysis of 13 studies of the teratological effects of pulsed magnetic fields on chick embryos from ten independent laboratories permits no clear conclusions. Comparatively little has been done to follow up on the reports by Juutilainen and coworkers on the effects of extremely low-frequency, sinusoidal magnetic fields on the malformation rate in chick embryos. Our attempt to follow up on their results using similar but not identical exposures of 10 μT, 50 Hz magnetic fields produced negative results.
