We used data from a large population-based case-control study to test the hypothesis that women whose "usual occupation" entailed exposure to higher than background 60-Hz magnetic fields had a higher risk of breast cancer than women without such exposure. Breast cancer cases were identified from four statewide tumor registries, and controls were randomly selected from lists of licensed drivers and Medicare beneficiaries. Information on usual occupation and breast cancer risk factors was… CONTINUE READING
