This chapter discusses the link between electromagnetic fields and cancer, focusing on the nonionizing part of the electromagnetic spectrum, and within that range, only with frequencies up to 300 GHz. Topics covered include the interaction of nonionizing radiation with biological systems, potential mechanisms of carcinogenicity, public concern with nonionizing radiation, and exposure sources and populations studied.

Keywords:   cancer risk, nonionizing radiation, electromagnetic fields, radiofrequency radiation exposure
