EMF should be classified as a Group 1
- KNOWN CARCINOGEN to HUMANS
Dr Anthony B Miller, an expert cancer researcher and advisor to the WHO IARC has issued his scientific opinion that RF EMF from any source fully meets criteria to be classified as a Group 1 carcinogenic agent to humans based on scientific evidence associated RF EMF exposure to cancer development and cancer promotion.
“The evidence indicating wireless is carcinogenic has increased and can no longer be ignored” Miller stated at a July 31, 2017 lecture in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, USA, sponsored by the Environmental Health Trust where international experts presented the best available science on mobile phone and wireless radiation. Miller believes the evidence published since 2011 fulfils the requirements to re-classify RF radiation as a Group 1 KNOWN CARCINOGEN.
Miller explained that the basis for his opinion includes recent scientific publications which include the:
- 2014 French National CERENAT Study
- 2016 results of the US National Toxicology Program
- 2017 re-analysis of data from the Interphone study
- several new publications on Swedish cancer data
Previous to this, Miller sought the current IARC classification of 2b – ‘possible’ – to be upgraded to 2a – ‘probable’. Miller’s statement is now in line with other highly qualified EMF experts who have previously called for the Group 1 classification.
