From Powerwatch news, 29 Feb. 2008:Summary:
Professors Mike O’Carroll and Denis Henshaw have now published their paper looking at aggregated statistical associations on the evidence of health effects from extremely low frequency electromagnetic fields. We briefly covered some of the key statistical points of their paper in the table on our news story about the poor HPA advice at the end of last month.
In essence, whilst the methodology is designed to be “indicative” and not “conclusive”, it shows quite clearly that the evidence supporting an increase in risk for cancer other than childhood leukaemia is particularly strong.
Their paper looks specifically at the IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer) and CDHS (California Department of Health Services) reviews, and covers childhood leukaemia, adult leukaemia, adult brain cancer, miscarriage and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a form of motor neurone disease.
