Mobile phones pose few risks

Norwegian and Swedish researchers have determined that there’s little if any danger that modern mobile telephones and wireless networks pose a health risk. 

The study was done for the Norwegian Institute of Public Health (Folkehelseinstituttet) and concluded that there’s no scientific evidence that low-level electromagnetic field exposure causes health problems.

Per Erik Heimdal of the communications authority (Post- og teletilsynet) was a member of the commission preparing a report on mobile phone use. He told newspaper Aftenposten that even though new “smart” phones have a wide variety of functions, they produce only 1-2 percent of the emissions old cell phones did.

The commission presented its report to health authorities on Thursday. More details can be found here (external link).
