here is still no ev­i­dence mo­bile phones harm hu­man health, found UK’S Health Pro­tec­tion Agency (HPA)’S big­gest ever re­view of the ev­i­dence sur­round­ing the safety of mo­bile phones. Sci­en­tists looked at hun­dreds of stud­ies of mo­bile ex­po­sure and found no con­clu­sive links to can­cer risk, brain func­tion, heart prob­lems or in­fer­til­ity.

How­ever, they said mon­i­tor­ing should con­tinue be­cause lit­tle was known about risks be­yond 15 years as mo­bile phones be­came pop­u­lar in the late 1990s. The HPA said chil­dren should still avoid ex­ces­sive use of mo­biles. The ex­perts high­light that more work was needed on the ef­fect of ra­dio fre­quency fields.
