Most studies on the melatonin (MLT) hypothesis in rats have reported partial inhibition of MLT secretion under long term exposure to weak ELF magnetic fields (MF). Recent data on magnetoreception and on cancer promotion by circadian disruption encourage to go back to the MLT hypothesis, with applying it the association between ELF MF and childhood leukemia, and with envisaging possible involvement of the magnetic sense.
