Non-ionizing Radiation Exposures

Non-ionizing radiation includes exposures such as electromagnetic fields (EMF) produced by power lines, radiofrequency energy used in microwave ovens or emitted by cell phones, and solar ultraviolet radiation. DCEG researchers investigate the cancer risks from environmental and occupational exposure to non-ionizing radiation.

Examples of studies include:
