Abstract

The potential carcinogenicity of electric and magnetic fields encountered in “electrical occupations” has been of concern to researchers and the public for nearly 20 years. Increasingly complex methods of occupational epidemiology have been applied to this issue, culminating in a series of reports in the past decade from studies that are large, apply intricate methods of exposure assessment, and use complex statistical analyses. The article by Sorahanet al 1 examining mortality from brain cancer among over 80 000 employees of the former Central Electricity Generating Board is a methodologically strong addition to these publications.
