Application of the Hill criteria [Q9] shows that the evidence for a
causal association between exposure to static fields and the incidence
of cancer is weak to nonexistent.
- A review of the epidemiological evidence shows that the association
between exposure to static magnetic fields and cancer is weak to
- The laboratory studies of static fields show no evidence of the type
of effects on cells, tissues or animals that point towards static fields
causing, or contributing to, cancer [Q12,Q13,Q14].
- From what is known about the biophysics of static magnetic fields and
the effects of static magnetic fields on biological systems, there is no
reason to even suspect that they would cause or contribute to cancer
