Can Non-Ionizing Radiation Cause Cancer?

Author(s): Magda Havas

Our exposure to non-ionizing radiation (NIR) has been increasing steadily with our use of electricity, electronic equipment and-more recently-with our use of wireless technology. Concurrently, epidemiological studies have been documenting an increased cancer risk for people who use cell phones for 10 years or more and for those who live near cell phone base stations, broadcast antennas, radar installations, or powerlines. Health care authorities and physicists dismiss these studies because non-ionizing radiation doesn’t have enough energy to break chemical bonds and, hence cannot cause cancer. Right? Wrong!
