Health Protection Agency: Mobile phones are safe to use, “no solid evidence of health effects”

The Health Protection Agency has reported their finding on independently looking at the “substantial amount of research” on the impact of using wireless devices and its exposure to radiofrequency (RF) on us humans. According to their report there’s “no convincing evidence that mobile phone technologies cause adverse effects on human health.” So no brain tumours, cancer, headaches, memory loss or attention deficit disorder.

Certainly good news, but comes with some warning. The HPA is still saying that the mobile industry is relatively new, only really been in existence for 15 years, and we should “continue to monitor the evidence” and be cautious when using a device.

Professor Anthony Swerdlow, Chairman of the Group, said “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.”

Keep on talking people…
