Are electric cars safe to drive? Experts dismiss fears that exposure to their electromagnetic fields could cause cancer
- Flow of electrical current to motor produces electromagnetic fields (EMF)
- EMF has been linked with serious health issues, including a higher risk of cancer, miscarriage, depression, headaches and memory problems
- Highest values of electromagnetic exposure in electric cars were measured near the floor, close to the battery itself and when starting the cars
- Study found EMF exposure was lower than 20% of the value recommended by the International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection
