“An Overview of Potential Novel Mechanisms of Action Underlying Tumor Treating Fields-induced Cancer Cell Death and Their Clinical Implications,” International Journal of Radiation Biology, posted October 21, 2020.

“Recent findings implicate TTFields’ role in different important pathways such as DNA damage response and replication stress, ER stress, membrane permeability, autophagy, and immune response.”

“Detection and Learning of Floral Electric Fields by Bumblebees,” by Daniel Robert and coworkers at the U.K.’s University of Bristol, Science, published online February 21, 2013:

 “Like visual cues, floral electric fields exhibit variations in pattern and structure, which can be discriminated by bumblebees. ”

Bioelectromagnetics has posted “Comments” by Louis Slesin, the editor of Microwave News on the call to stop research on power-frequency electric fields by Leeka Kheifets and John Swanson (see “The Real Junk Science of EMFs”). The two electric utility insiders declined the journal's offer to respond. The comments are now on the journal's Web site and will be published in its February 2010 issue.

A decade after some of the world's leading epidemiologists agreed that exposure to power line EMFs could lead to childhood leukemia, the denial continues. Some people still believe that the studies that link EMFs to cancer are nothing more than junk science. Even those who should know better refuse to acknowledge the risks. The World Health Organization (WHO) says the association is so weak that it can be pretty much ignored, and the leading radiation protection group, ICNIRP, has refused to endorse precaution. Here in the U.S., the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) scarcely acknowledges that EMFs are even a health issue.
