What does the WHO IARC Classifications of ELF-EMF and RFR as Group 2B Possible Human Carcinogens Mean?

The World Health Organization International Agency for Cancer Research (IARC) designated ELF-EMF as a Group 2B (Possible) Carcinogen in 2001. This is the kind of exposure from power lines, battery switching in cell phone devices, laptop computers and appliances. The World Health Organization specifically reaffirmed it s finding that EMF is classifiable as a Group 2B Possible Human Carcinogen in 2006 in their Health Criteria Monograph #238.

World Health Organization International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) Cancer Classifications:

Group 1 Known Human Carcinogen
Group 2A Probable Human Carcinogen
Group 2B Possible Human Carcinogen
Group 3 Insufficient Evidence
Group 4 Not A Carcinogen

In 2012, IARC determined that scientific evidence is sufficient now to classify radiofrequency radiation (non-ionizing) as a Group 2B Possible Human Carcinogen. This is the kind of exposure from cell and cordless phones, cell towers, WI-FI, wireless laptops, electronic baby monitors and wireless ?smart? utility meters.

So, what does this mean? According to the classification categories, it is again clear IARC did NOT find so little clear and consistent evidence to support a finding of ''Not A Carcinogen''. That would be the valid test that RFR is safe, as best public health experts can judge the evidence. Nor did IARC find that the evidence we have is just not sufficient yet to decide the question (to make a judgment). Rather, IARC found the evidence supports classification as a Possible (not Probable or Known Carcinogen) cancer-causing agent.

That is not a weak or reckless judgment made with few facts. It should be a strong warning to governments to reconsider their safety standards, particularly in light of the billions of people at potential health risk from new wireless technologies. That studies of cell and cordless phones and of wireless whole-body RFR exposures already make health impacts ?epidemiologically visible? (Sections 11 and 21).
