Paper Abstract

The incidence of malignant neoplasms in the territories with different levels of magnetic induction of the industrial frequency was investigated. The measurement of magnetic induction was performed using an automated complex including a laptop, a GPS receiver and magnetic induction testers oriented in accordance with the three components of the magnetic field vector. The measured data were subjected to spectral transformation with filtering harmonics of the industrial frequency, the magnetic induction module was calculated, which was displayed on the electromagnetic pollution map of the city. Data on cases of diseases for 2004–2012. were obtained from the cancer registry of the Tomsk Regional Oncology Center. The incidence was calculated in the territories with low (20–140 nT), medium (141–950 nT) and high (951–2511 nT) values of magnetic induction. An increase in the incidence of malignant tumors has been noted as the induction of the magnetic field produced by overhead power transmission lines increases. According to the Wilcoxon test, differences in morbidity are significant for incidence in areas with low and medium levels of magnetic induction at a significance level of p = 0.038; for morbidity in areas with low and high, medium and high levels of magnetic induction at a significance level of p = 0.007. The received epidemiological data demonstrate the role of magnetic fields of industrial frequency as a risk factor for occurrence of oncological diseases in the population.
