EMFs Research Programmes
We feel it's important to draw your own conclusions on the health effects of mobile phone use and electro-pollution in general from an informed place - and to listen to the messages from your own body as part of your process of understanding.
This page shows the latest scientific information we have researched.
The Interphone Study - New research is due to be officially published at any moment, produced by the ten year long Interphone Study, overseen by the World Health Organisation. The project carried out studies in 13 countries, talking to tumour sufferers as well as healthy cell phone users. It interviewed 12,800 people.
The BioInitiative Report, a major work, was produced in 2007 by an international group of scientists, researchers and public health professionals (The BioInitiative Working Group) and edited by Cindy Sage, MA and David O. Carpenter, MD. of the US.
This followed the issue of the BioInitiative Report: A Rationale for a Biologically-based Public Exposure Standard for Electromagnetic Fields (ELF and RF) 31st August 2007
An international working group of renowned scientists, researchers and public health policy professionals (The BioInitiative Working Group) has released its report on electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and health.
After reviewing over 2000 research publications scientists raise concerns about the safety of existing public limits that regulate how much EMF is allowable from power lines, mobile phones, and many other sources of EMF exposure in daily life.
The report documents scientific evidence raising worries about health impacts including childhood leukemia (from power lines and other electrical exposures), brain tumors and acoustic neuromas (from mobile phones and cordless phones) and Alzheimers disease. There is evidence that EMFs area risk factor for both childhood and adult cancers.
Public health expert and co-editor of the Report, Dr David O Carpenter, Director, Institute for Health and the Environment at the University of Albany, New York states: "This report stands as a wake-up call that long-term exposure to some kinds of EMFs may cause serious health effects. Good public health planning is needed now to prevent cancers and neurological diseases linked to exposure to power lines and other sources of EMFs. We need to educate the public and our decision makers that business as usual is unacceptable."
