Abstract
An overview of current knowledge regarding the possible carcinogenic hazards of occupational exposure to radiofrequency (RF) and microwave (MW) radiation is presented based on a review of the pertinent literature published since 1970. Recent findings are reported, and current substantive issues and impressions are discussed with attention to the identification of those effects which might enhance an already carcinogenic or potentially carcinogenic situation. Specific gaps in the present knowledge of ionizing and nonionizing radiation carcinogenesis, and specific areas in cancer research in need of further investigation are identified.
