Inside View of the IARC Monograph Meeting 102

The procedures of the IARC Monograph Program are described in the article, "The Eyes of the World Were Upon Us – An Inside View of the IARC Monograph Meeting 102: Evaluation of the Carcinogenic Risks of RF-EMF to Humans" by Meike Mevissen and Christopher J. Portier. The article was published in EMF Spectrum 3/2011

The Monographs Program has evaluated more than 900 agents and has identified more than 400 as carcinogenic, probably carcinogenic, or possibly carcinogenic to humans. The article explains how the almost unanimous decision that declared RF-EMF as a possible human carcinogen was reached and why this reflects sound science and reasonable public health practice.
