Reducing Environmental Cancer Risk: What We Can Do Now

2008–2009 Annual Report of the [U.S.] President’s Cancer Panel, (National Institute of Cancer, National Institutes of Health) USA, April 2010

The Panel considered industrial, occupational, and agricultural exposures as well as exposures related to medical practice, military activities, modern lifestyles, and natural sources. They emphasis that children are far more vulnerable to environmental toxins and radiation than adults. Efforts to inform the public of such harmful exposures and how to prevent them must be increased. One of the components discussed is electromagnetic exposure from ELF to RF. They recommend precautionary measures, e.g., usage of hand sets, text messages, etc., and request more research from ELF to RF to clarify the cancer risk and also long-term monitoring of the exposure.
