A decade ago, a major research initiative, with orchestrated monetary and programmatic support from both industry and the government, was launched to investigate the biological effects and health implications of radio frequency (RF) radiation emitted from cellular mobile telephones. The subject remains a focus of public concern and shows no sign of relenting. There is a lack of scientific consensus on experimental studies that provide clear evidence either refuting or supporting the cancer induction or promotion potential of RF and microwave radiation from cell phones. The uncertainties persist, in part, because of the limited number and scope of studies that have been undertaken.
