Electromagnetic Fields: What the experts say

  • Norwegian Public Health Institute. Folkehelseinstituttet / September 2012

     

    In its report, the Committee of Experts of the Norwegian Public Health Institute concludes that there is no scientific evidence that low-level exposure to electromagnetic fields from mobile telephones causes adverse effects for health.

    The main recommendation of this group of experts is to emphasise the need to establish channels for good information and communication on this subject.

  • Swedish Council for Working Life and Social Rresearch (FAS) / August 2012

     

    At the request of the FAS, the Swedish group of scientific experts in radiofrequencies has carried out an analysis of the last ten years of research.

    Among other conclusions, on the one hand they do not find evidence which makes it possible to establish a link between the symptoms of electromagnetic hypersensitivity and exposure to electromagnetic fields. On the other hand, the results obtained in studies carried out on patients with brain tumours who have used mobile telephones do not show any kind of causal relationship.

  • Advisory Group on Non-ionising Radiation (AGNIR) / April 2012

     

    A new report by the Health Protection Agency’s independent Advisory Group on Non-ionising Radiation (AGNIR) has concluded that there is still no convincing evidence that mobile phone technologies cause adverse effects on human health. The report, which updates AGNIR’s previous review in 2003, considers the scientific evidence on exposure to radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic fields, which are produced by mobile phone technologies and other wireless devices, such as Wi-Fi, as well as television and radio transmitters.
