GSM association: INTERPHONE and other "science milestones"



Group 2B carcinogen?

I checked the International Association for Research on Cancer [IARC] website for the IARC Monographs, and under Group 2B [possible human carcinogen] electromagnetic fields are no longer listed. Nor have they been reclassified. I sent off an email to IARC some time back to find out what happened but have not received a response. Thought you’d like to know.

Then, today I received this url in an email. //www.gsmworld.com/using/health/science_milestones.shtml .

It seems that we should hold our breath ‘til 2010. I wonder why?

As far as I can see the 2B classification is still there.


The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) is an agency of the World Health Organisation. Its Unit of Carcinogen Identification and Evaluation has, since 1972, periodically published Monographs which assess the evidence that various agents are carcinogenic and classify the agents accordingly. In June 2001, a Working Group met to consider static and extremely-low-frequency electric and magnetic fields. The key decision was to classify power-frequency magnetic fields as ³possibly carcinogenic².

The complete results have been published as Monograph number 80 and a summary of the key findings and classifications has been released by IARC. The following table assembles the various classifications into a single table.

Power-frequency magnetic fields were classified as "possibly carcinogenic" on the basis of

- "limited" evidence from humans concerning childhood leukaemia,

- "inadequate" evidence from humans concerning all other cancer types, and

-"inadequate" evidence from animals.

Power-frequency electric fields were judged "not classifiable" on the basis of "inadequate" evidence from both humans and animals.

These classifications are consistent with the conclusions reached by the NRPB's Advisory Group.

Many other agents have been placed by IARC in the same category of "possibly carcinogenic" see complete list.
