Posted on 11/4/19

In spring 2019, an advisory group had recommended that the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) should reassess the cancer risks associated with non-ionizing radiofrequency radiation with high priority (see news article from April 04, 2019). The full report on priorities for the IARC Monographs during 2020-2024 is now available on the IARC website. On the topic of non-ionizing radiation, the recommendations are as follows (p. 148-149): High priority for a reassessment of radiofrequency EMF within 5 years and no recommendation for a reassessment of extremely low frequency magnetic fields.
