Netanya (Minor keyword)


In the area of exposure (area A) eight cases of different kinds of cancer were
diagnosed in a period of only one year. This rate of cancers was compared both with the rate of 31 cases per 10,000 per year in the general population and the 2/1222 rate recorded in the nearby clinic (area B). Relative cancer rates for femaleswere 10.5 for area A, 0.6 for area B and 1 for the whole town of Netanya. Cancer incidence of women in area A was thus significantly higher (p less than 0.0001) compared with that of area B and the whole city. A comparison of the relative risk revealed that there were 4.15 times more cases in area A than in the entire population.
The study indicates an association between increased incidence of cancer and living in proximity to a cell-phone transmitter station.
