WHO fact sheets

In recognition of the ongoing discussion about mobile phone technology and health the World Health Organisation WHO has issued and updated several Fact Sheets about mobile phone base stations, mobile phones and EHS (electromagnetic hypersensitivity). Please find here the links to these Fact Sheets:

WHO Fact Sheet 193

“To date, no adverse health effects have been established for mobile phone use.”
“A retrospective case-control study on adults, INTERPHONE, coordinated by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), was designed to determine whether there are links between use of mobile phones and head and neck cancers in adults. The international pooled analysis of data gathered from 13 participating countries found no increased risk of glioma or meningioma with mobile phone use of more than 10 years. There are some indications of an increased risk of glioma for those who reported the highest 10% of cumulative hours of cell phone use, although there was no consistent trend of increasing risk with greater duration of use. Researchers concluded that biases and errors limit the strength of these conclusions and prevent a causal interpretation.“
