  1. Magnetic fields and cancer in children residing near Swedish high-voltage power lines.

    Article - En anglais

    A case-control study was conducted to test the hypothesis that exposure to magnetic fields of the type generated by high-voltage power lines increases cancer incidence in children.

    The study base consisted of everyone under age 16 years who had lived on a property located within 300 meters of any of the 220 and 400 kV power lines in Sweden during the period 1960-1985.

    Subjects were followed from their entry into the study base through 1985.

    A total of 142 cancer cases were identified through a record linkage to the Swedish Cancer Registry.

    There were 39 leukemia and 33 central nervous system tumor cases.

    A total of 558 controls were selected at random from the study base.
