    Health Authorities' View on Mobile Radiation

    Health authorities' view on mobile radiation 

    Health authorities' view on mobile radiation differs in large skale from country to country. Danish health authorities do not openly or directly warn the public about the use of mobile phones. However, along with WHO they do refer to the "precautionary principle", which indicate both a call for caution and for precautions along with an overall serious regard to the issue of mobile radiation.

    Tthe lack of research clarifying numerous unanswered questions about side effects must be compared to the explosive rise in use and exposure in the field since research started some 10-15 years ago. (Read more about the development here). Especially the risks of side effects from long term use of mobile phones, tablets, WIFI etc. requires more research in adults and particularly in children (link til engelsk nyhed omkring børn og mobilstråling) who absore up to 60% more radiation than adults.
    There is a paradox for the consumer having to relate to mobile radiation when the authorities have no clear guidelines but merely suggest a "limited use". Could mobile radiation be the new tobacco or asbestos in its own field? Every day, new critical reports on the health risk are being published so perhaps we will soon have more strickt guidelines. Fortuanatly, there is already some precautions you, as a consumer, can take in order to protect yourself and reduce the radiation.

     
    Scandinavian Health Authorities recommend: 

    The precautionary principle:
    "(...)For all children, young people and adults to limit their use of mobile phones -"

    including:

    • call/use the mobile phone only for brief conversations
    • restrict the use of mobile phones in areas with poor reception - check the display on the phone
    • avoid use during transportation as radiation will increase repeatedly to a maximum when locating and connecting to a new radio tower
    • parents should restrict their children's' use of mobile phones and not give mobile phones at all to children under a certain age. In general, children should not use mobile phones until they can understand the need for a limited use of the phone for conversations only

    The European Environment Agency (EEA)

    Both in 2007 and 2011 the EEA warned about health hazards from radio-frequency radiation and the Agency recommends the precautionary principle be put to use. Governments, the mobile industry and the public all are encouraged to reduce exposure and the recommendation is to re-evaluate the exposure limits.
    "We may risk irreversible damage to human health and nature by allowing too high radiation limits from mobile phones, wireless networks and power lines"

    The European Council

    In 2011 the European Council announced that radio frequent radiation poses a health risk and that exposure to the public therefore should be reduced. Additionally, the EC call for protection of children and young people especially and encourage the use land lines in schools instead of WIF. See more here
