    Its Fact Sheet No. 193 “Electromagnetic Fields and Public Health: Mobile Phones” concludes that “to date, no adverse health effects have been established for mobile phone use”.

    This Fact Sheet includes the results of the international epidemiological research project INTERPHONE: “(…) no increase in brain cancer has been observed as a result of the use of mobile phones. Faced with the possibility of increased risk of brain tumours from long-term maximum level exposure, research should continue”.
