Study finds no evidence of health risk from mobile phones

There is no scientific evidence that low-level electromagnetic field exposure from mobile phones causes adverse health effects, according to a report presented by a Norwegian Expert Committee. The committee, appointed by the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, provides health advice to authorities when dealing with dealing with risk management and regulatory practice, UPI reports. The research found that the threshold limit for mobile phone or Wi-Fi was 50 times below the level that causes heating of human tissue or stimulation of nerve cells. As such, the committee found that the radiation did not increase the risk of cancer, impair male fertility, cause other reproductive damage or lead to other diseases and adverse health effects.
