It has been suggested that electromagnetic (EM) fields can act as co-promoters during neoplastic transformation. To examine this possibility, we studied the effects of 0.8-, 8-, 80-, and 300-microT 60-Hz electromagnetic (EM) fields in INITC3H/10T1/2 mouse fibroblast cells. These cells are transformed carcinogenically by methylcholanthrene, but the neoplastic phenotype can be suppressed indefinitely by the presence of retinyl acetate (RAC) in the culture medium. The effects of EM field exposures… CONTINUE READING
