This study aims to explore whether there is a relationship between different electromagnetic radiations, such as extremely low-frequency magnetic field (ELF-MF), radiofrequency (RF) radiation and ionizing radiation, and Alzheimer's disease. Resources related to the subject were scanned and 46 articles that were important to clarify the subject were evaluated. The results of the study investigating the relationship between Alzheimer's disease (AD) and electromagnetic fields were still contradictory. Whereas many researchers suggest that some electromagnetic radiation has prepared the ground for AD, others claim that RF radiation has a positive effect on the disease in question. The current state of knowledge calls for further detailed studies to clarify the issue.
