Radio Signals and Health

The latest report of the Scientific Council on Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) for the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority includes an overview of how scientific evidence has changed since the reports began in 2002 and finds that the evidence that mobile phones or wireless networks could pose a health risk to humans or the environment has become increasingly weaker.

However, the Scientific Council notes that some questions have not been answered satisfactorily and thus need more research, so there is a need to continue monitoring and reporting on new scientific findings.

In addition to reviewing new scientific developments the 2016 report looks at whether and how evidence for health effects has changed over the last thirteen years. The findings were presented at a seminar on 19 May that can be viewed online.
