Using a mobile phone causes no negative health effects

Despite the long-running belief that using a mobile phone could potentially give you cancer or generally cause health problems and new study believes otherwise

 

The Health Protection Agency has published results of a study which have found that there is 'no solid evidence' to suggest that using a mobile phone is harmful to your health.

Despite the common myth that using a mobile phone can potentially increase your risk of getting cancer, the study has found that there is no real evidence which suggests this is true.

Looking at the levels of exposure humans are subjected too by RF fields the study found that if exposure is maintained at below guideline levels then the risk of health effects is negligable.

Summarising on the study Professor Anthony Swerdlow was keen to highlight that although these are the clearest findings to date it should not be considered as a question now answered.

“There are still limitations to the published research that preclude a definitive judgment, but the evidence overall has not demonstrated any adverse effects on human health from exposure to radiofrequency fields below internationally accepted guideline levels.”
