  1. Exposure to power-frequency magnetic fields and the risk of childhood cancer.

    Article - En anglais

    Previous studies have suggested an association between exposure to power-frequency electromagnetic fields (EMF) and the development of childhood malignant disease, especially leukaemia and tumours of the central nervous system.

    We investigated the relation between all childhood cancer and exposure to, power-frequency magnetic fields. (...) Interpretation - This study provides no evidence that exposure to magnetic fields associated with the electricity supply in the UK increases risks for childhood leukaemia, cancers of the nervous system, or any other childhood cancer.
