Epidemiological Research on Magnetic Field Exposure from Cellular Phones and Risk of Cancer
The purpose of this short paper is to give a briefly review of the existing epidemiological literature relevant to human health on the association between exposure to electromagnetic fields in the radio frequency area and risk of cancer and while doing so address some of the methodological problems in these studies.
