Case-Control Study on Occupational Exposure to Extremely Low-Frequency Electromagnetic Fields and the Association with Meningioma

Table 2

Odds ratio (OR) and 95% confidence interval (CI) for meningioma (,592) for occupational exposure to ELF-EMF in time windows, 1–14 and 15+ years before diagnosis. Unconditional logistic regression, adjusted for age at diagnosis, gender, socioeconomic index (SEI), and year of diagnosis. Exposure the year before diagnosis was excluded (“1-year lag”).
