The authors investigated the occurrence of cases of leukaemia, brain cancer, and lymphatic cancer in children under 21 years of age in an area around a large microwave tower located to the southwest of the centre of San Francisco. They used three analytical approaches to investigate a possible association between the electromagnetic radiation from the tower and the occurrence of cancer. Their results showed that cancer occurrence was random. In other words, no pattern emerged that suggested an association between the tower and the occurrence of cancer.

The weaknesses of this study were that no measurements of exposure were taken, and other factors that could influence the occurrence of cancer were not considered.
