Mobile Phone Radiation Protection
Fresh fears over the health hazards linked to using mobile
phones have been raised after scientists found that handset
radiation could trigger cell division.
A study found that exposure to mobile phone signals for just
five minutes stimulated human cells to split in two - a
process that occurs naturally when tissue grows or
rejuvenates, but that is also central to the development of
Previous research on the safety of mobile use has led to
conflicting conclusions, with some suggesting links with
tumours in the nervous system and others finding no risks.
The six-year Mobile Telecommunications and Health Research
Programme, which provided £8.4 million of Government and
industry funding for 25 studies, is expected to present its
final report next month.
Official guidance that mobile phones were safe was based on
the mainstream scientific assumption that electromagnetic
radiation from such devices could damage cells and tissue
only by heating them.
But the new research, reported in this week's New Scientist,
supports the position of those researchers who argue that
handsets can trigger potentially harmful changes to cells
irrespective of temperature changes.
