[ RadSafe ] EMF and brain tumors in animals

Here is an article that claims that 95 per cent of animals exposed to
electromagnetic radiation within the safe limits as per international
standards may develop brain tumours.


At first I thought it was some really fringe stuff, but the author, Prof
Jitendra Behari, seems very capable. A quick PubMed search (see below) shows
some impressive research articles.

Is anyone aware of this research?
