We studied the relationship between power-frequency magnetic fields and locations of suicidal deaths in 1969–76 in the West Midlands, England. We found a significant correlation between suicide locations and the measured power-frequency magnetic field strength. Significantly more suicides occurred at locations of high magnetic field strength.
