The increasing number of artificial sources of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) raises concern about its impact on human health. Beside many beneficial and therapeutic applications of EMFs [1], there are more and more publications describing the unfavourable effect of the EMFs exposure on humans and mostly pointing on the deterioration of well-being, disruption of the nervous system functions or the cancer occurrence. Recently, there have also appeared articles indicating the relationship between the higher incidence of neurodegenerative diseases and the increased exposure to EMFs [2]-[4]. However, the published results are not unequivocal and often contradictory. Researchers try to define a mechanism that could explain the impact of EMFs exposure on the increased incidence of neurodegenerative diseases, suggesting the participation of, among others, oxidative stress. Nevertheless, further research is needed to thoroughly explain the mechanism of action of the EM field on the central nervous system and to explain the potential relationship with neurodegenerative diseases. In this paper, neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease (AD), Parkinson's disease (PD), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALT) and multiple sclerosis (MS) will be briefly presented. Next, the relationship between the incidence of neurodegenerative diseases and the EMFs exposure will be discussed. Also an examples of usage of EM fields in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases will be described at the end. A brief description of neurodegenerative diseases Neurodegeneration is the progressive loss of structure or function of neurons, including death of neurons. There are several hundred neurodegenerative diseases (NDD), and the main difficulty in their classification lies in the fact that their symptoms may coincide with each other. An additional issue in the classification of neurodegenerative diseases is the fact that in many neurodegenerativ[...]
