An Assessment of Potential Health Effects from Exposure to
PAVE PAWS Low-Level Phased Array Radiofrequency Energy
A new report from the National Academies examines whether a radar system at a U.S. Air Force Base on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, poses a health risk to nearby residents. It specifically addresses whether the radar might be responsible in part for the reported higher rates of certain cancers in the area -- long a concern of area residents.
This briefing was for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on January 13, 2004 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
