ELF emission
Last modified: Sunday, September 01, 1996 

ELF stands for extremely low frequency, and ELF emissions are magnetic fields generated by common electrical appliances. There is considerable debate about whether ELF emissions from computer monitors pose a threat. Some European countries have adopted regulations controlling the amount of allowable emission. The most well-know regulation is Sweden's MPR II standard. You can play it safe by buying MPR II-compliant monitors.
