To the Editor We write with serious concerns about the Review article by Dr Grimes on cancer and radiofrequency radiation (RFR)1 with respect to basic factual accuracy and misrepresentation. The article contains extensive commentary on ionizing radiation and does not address the substantial body of science on nonionizing RFR effects.

The scientific literature published on this subject is voluminous but largely ignored by the author. Based on knowledge of electromagnetic biology and medicine, we and others have demonstrated adverse health effects, including cancer in humans, resulting from chronic exposure to nonthermal levels of RFR.
