Still no proof that mobiles are health risk

There is still a huge amount of interest in whether exposure to mobile phones has harmful health effects.

The Institution of Engineering and Technology's (IET) biological effects policy advisory group concludes that the balance of scientific evidence does not indicate that normal exposure to low-level electromagnetic fields has harmful health effects.

The absence of robust evidence of harmful health effects is reassuring and is consistent with findings over the past 20 years.
