A new report by the Health Protection Agency’s independent Advisory Group on Non-ionising Radiation (AGNIR) has concluded that there is still no evidence that mobile phones have harmful effects on human health.
Based on the scientific evidence on exposure to radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic fields, the report finds no conclusive links to cancer risk, brain function or infertility.
Radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic fields are produced by mobile phone technologies and other wireless devices, such as Wi-Fi, as well as television and radio transmitters.
According to BBC, Prof Anthony Swerdlow, Chairman of the review group, said it was important to continue monitoring research.
“Even though it’s relatively reassuring, I also think it’s important that we keep an eye on the rates of brain tumours and other cancers,” he said
The HPA said children should still avoid excessive use of mobiles.
According to the Moroccan National Agency for Regulation of Tele-Communications (NART), the number of users of the mobile telephone network in Morocco reached 23.5 million mobile phone subscribers.
With this big number of mobile users as well as TV and radio broadcasting, Wi-Fi, and other technological developments, exposure to radio frequency fields is inevitable.
