Scientists continue research on the health risks of using mobile phones, as they find it tough to draw any definitive conclusion, even after many years of study on this crucial issue. Despite the reassuring research published so far, the massive increase in mobile phone usage among young people is still worrying researchers as they look to carry out a longer term evaluation in a more scientific way.
Stuart Eke, the Public Affairs Manager for the Mobile Operators Association (MOA) representing the five major UK mobile phone network operators said, “There has been a significant investment in independent scientific research into the safety of mobile telephony in the past two decades and the scientific evidence has been reviewed by agencies around the world including the WHO. The outcome of these reviews is consistent and extremely reassuring.”
The most recent statement from the WHO published in May 2010 concluded, “No adverse health effects have been established for mobile phone use to date by the large number of studies performed over the last two decades to assess whether mobile phones pose a potential health risk.” Eke further explained that all mobile phones are built complying with international health and safety standards, minimising people’s exposure to radio frequency emissions.
However, findings of the research done by various organisations thus far still doesn’t establish any evidence to prove mobile phones as a potential threat to people’s health.
