Health & mobile phones
The widespread use of mobile phones has led to public concern about possible adverse effects on health. These concerns relate to the emissions of radio waves from phones and the base stations that receive and transmit the radio signals.
In 1999 the Government commissioned an independent study into the effects of mobile phones. The ‘Stewart Report’ was published in May 2000 and concluded that “the balance of evidence does not suggest mobile phone technologies put the health of the general population of the UK at risk”. However a “precautionary approach” to the use of mobile phones was recommended and research is ongoing.
