Are there limits to the exposure of human bodies to magnetic fields? What happens if we cross that limit? How to create such magnetic fields? Has this been tried out?

    $\begingroup$ I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's about human physiological response to magnetic fields not physics $\endgroup$ – John Rennie Jan 6 '16 at 6:32

    $\begingroup$ @JohnRennie unless of course we go to the point of spin-polarizing every electron shell in the body :D then there's not much physiology left $\endgroup$ – LLlAMnYP Jan 6 '16 at 6:34

    $\begingroup$ related question here: physics.stackexchange.com/q/61679 and here's a very nice article on the subject. gravityandlevity.wordpress.com/2015/01/12/… The short answer is, it would take an enormous amount of magnetism to do a person any real harm. $\endgroup$ – userLTK Jan 6 '16 at 7:24
