Electromagnetic radiation experiment. Rats being exposed to electromagnetic fields from electrical power lines. The rats live inside plastic cages which are placed within a specially constructed wooden cylinder. The cylinder is lined with power cables that emit electromagnetic radiation equivalent to those of electricity power lines. At the end of their natural life span (3 years), the rats undergo an autopsy to search for tumours and other diseases. Overhead and underground electricity lines emit electromagnetic radiation that may affect health of humans. Photographed at the Cancer Research Centre, Ramazzini Foundation, Bologna, Italy.
