Are induction hobs harmful to your health?

Induction hobs generate heat energy through medium-frequency electromagnetic fields. These magnetic fields can cause harmful effects for those with pacemakers or insulin pumps. If you already own an induction hob, the British Heart Foundation (BHF) recommends – based on academic findings – that people with a pacemaker should get no closer than 60cm from an induction hob.
