cellphone5In een recent uitgekomen onderzoeksrapport wordt de kwalificering van de relatie van RF-velden en kanker besproken.

De huidige kwalificatie van RF-velden: "Mogelijk kankerverwekkend" moet, met de resultaten van recente onderzoeken, volgens deze wetenschappers nu gekwalificeerd worden als "Kankerverwekkend".

In het rapport: Cancer epidemiology update, following the 2011 IARC evaluation of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (Monograph 102)
wordt ingegaan op vooral enkele recent uitgekomen onderzoeken.


• Increased risk of brain, vestibular nerve and salivary gland tumors are associated with mobile phone use.
• Nine studies (2011–2017) report increased risk of brain cancer from mobile phone use.
• Four case-control studies (3 in 2013, 1 in 2014) report increased risk of vestibular nerve tumors.
• Concern for other cancers: breast (male & female), testis, leukemia, and thyroid.
• Based on the evidence reviewed it is our opinion that IARC's current categorization of RFR as a possible human carcinogen (Group 2B) should be upgraded to Carcinogenic to Humans (Group 1).

9. Synthesis and conclusions

"The Epidemiological studies reported since the 2011 IARC Working Group meeting are adequate to consider RFR as a probable human carcinogen (Group 2 A).

However, they must be supplemented with the recently reported animal data as performed at the Ramazzini Institute and the US National Toxicology Program as well as by mechanistic studies. These experimental findings together with the epidemiology reviewed here are sufficient in our opinion, to upgrade the IARC categorization of RFR to Group 1, carcinogenic to humans
