Mobile research finds 'no evidence of damage'

No convincing evidence has been revealed that mobile phones damage human health in spite of an “explosion” in research into the issue over the past decade, according to a review of scientific studies billed as the most comprehensive yet.

Driving while using a mobile phone remains the one established health risk of mobile phones, a leading scientist said as a report on exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields emitted by devices such as mobile phones was published.

The review found that a large number of studies have been published on cancer risks in relation to mobile phone use but overall the results have not demonstrated that the use of mobile phones causes brain tumours or any other type of cancer.

But the report, from the Health Protection Agency's independent advisory group on non-ionising radiation, warned that it was “important” to continue to monitor all the evidence.
