We give here the latest statement from the
various international authoritative groups.
The International Commission on
Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP)
evaluation of all the research on HF fields leads to the conclusion that HF
exposure below the thermal threshold is unlikely to be associated with adverse

“A large number
of studies have been performed over the last two decades to assess whether
mobile phones pose a potential health risk. To date, no adverse health effects
have been established as being caused by mobile phone use.”
statement on their website. Note: this statement is specific to mobile phones, but the same
conclusion would apply to all radiofrequency exposures.
Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly
Identified Health Risks (SCENIHR)
SCENIHR was the European Union’s scientific
advisory committee covering EMFs (the EU has subsequently reorganised its
scientific committees and the responsibility now lies with a different
committee, but the most recent opinion, in 2015, comes from SCENIHR).
epidemiological studies on mobile phone RF EMF exposure do not show an
increased risk of brain tumours. Furthermore, they do not indicate an increased
risk for other cancers of the head and neck region.”

Potential health effects of exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF)[JS3] . Note: this is their conclusion on cancers. The full report covers
other possible health effects with similar conclusions.
