This chapter focuses on the carcinogenic effects of exposure to electromagnetic fields, mainly power frequency and radiofrequency fields/microwaves. It describes the sources of exposure, reviews the available epidemiological studies, and considers the strengths and weaknesses of the available data, potential biases, and current knowledge about potential interactions. Based on current evidence, electromagnetic fields are not regarded as carcinogenic to humans, but there are open scientific questions that merit further research.
