On July 3, 1997, the National Cancer Institute released the results of a massive four-year study of power lines and cancer. These results appeared in the New England Journal of Medicine. The study itself was based on the most rigorous methods available for the study of cancer. This study conclusively and unambiguously found no health effects associated with electromagnetic fields. Sometimes, a little knowledge is a bad thing. Brodeur has furthered the waste of countless tax dollars, and in the process, likely caused the death of countless sufferers of cancer.
