Mobile phones and cancer: Part 3. Update and overall conclusions from epidemiological and animal studies

With the fast increase of mobile telecommunication and wireless internet also concern is growing. Can exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields lead to adverse health effects? The Health Council of the Netherlands regularly report on this. In the report published today the council concludes: there is no established association between long-term and frequent use of a mobile telephone and an increased risk for tumours in the brain or head and neck area. But such association can also not be fully excluded. The council therefore recommends to keep exposures as low as reasonably possible and to continue investigating effects.
