The authors used mortality records from 24 states in the USA from 1984-1989 to investigate possible risk factors for breast cancer. The "usual occupation" listed on death certificates was used to develop a job exposure matrix, which allowed the estimation of probability and level of 31 workplace exposures. There was no increased risk of breast cancer exposure with exposure to RF electromagnetic fields.
This study is severely limited by the likelihood of misclassification of occupation, and by the imprecise estimates of likelihood of exposure.
