A review is presented of the known mechanisms by which magnetic fields can interact with biological systems. The basic equations for exerting forces by both AC and DC magnetic fields on charged particles and dipoles are reviewed. Examples are given that allow order-of-magnitude estimates of the induced current densities and forces to be obtained. These estimates are compared with values known to induce measurable changes in the behavior of biological systems
