      The following article:
      Caplan LS; Schoenfeld ER; O'Leary ES; Leske MC. Breast cancer and
      electromagnetic fields--a review. Ann Epidemiol 2000 Jan;10(1):31-44.

      Finds a statistically significant increase in breast cancer for women
      working in several fields:
      Telephone installation and repairs: 2.17 increase
      Programmer/System Analyst: 1.65
      Telegraph/Radio operators: 1.40
      Telephone operators: 1.32

      Another study (I don't have the reference here) explain the results as
      melatonin deficiencies. He claims that all these occuptions require
      nightwork and nightwork can cause breast cancer.

      And yet another interesting study: January issue of New England Journal of
      Medince has yet another study trying to connect brain tumors and cellphone
      use, claiming no connection.
