This study analyzed the effects of a static electromagnetic field (EMF) on the L6 cell line (from rat thigh muscle). Experiments were conducted in which the cells were subjected to EMF magnitudes of 1,000, 3,000 and 5,000 gauss. These magnitudes are comparable to those of static magnets used for healing purposes. The growth of the cells was monitored for 24 hours post exposure. Statistical analysis showed that there was no significant difference in the growth pattern of the exposed cells.
