In May 2011, the International Agency for Research on Cancer of the World Health Organisation evaluated the scientific evidence on the risk of brain tumours. The scientific panel determined that RF radiation from equipment emitting nonionizing RF radiation in the 30 kHz - 300 GHz frequency range is a Group 2B, or "possible" human carcinogen2. Regarding the health implications of digital (wireless) This particular area is the result of a collaborative effort by professionals from many disciplines. Combining articles on child development and bioelectromagnetics provides a comprehensive review of scientific and public health information on the topic.
