Hear the experts
Would you like to hear what the world’s top experts have to say about wireless radiation?
On 14 June, the International Commission on BioEffects of Electromagnetic fields (ICBE-EMF) held a workshop at the Royal Society of Medicine in London.
It featured a line-up of top experts from around the world speaking on the topic: RADIOFREQUENCY RADIATION FROM WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS SOURCES: ARE THE SAFETY LIMITS SAFE?
The workshop featured presentations by:
Professor James Lin
Professor John Frank
Dr Erica Mallery-Blythe
Dr Kent Chamberlin
and David Gee
The event can now be seen free online here.
The new results apply to meters in stock and those that have already been purchased. You can see more here.
Kids at risk?
Last year scientists published a study claiming that young people’s mobile phone use did not increase their risks of brain tumours but new evidence shows that that’s not necessarily true.
In a paper published in September, Drs Lennart Hardell and Joel M Moskowitz analysed the MOBI-Kids study that was published in 2022 and concluded that the results it reported can’t be relied upon.
The MOBI-kids study reported no increased risk of brain tumours overall and published data suggesting that mobile phone use actually gave a slightly protective effect against brain tumours.
However, Hardell and Moskowitz say that ‘The MOBI-Kids results are not biologically plausible and indicate that the study was flawed.’
Among their criticisms of the paper were that:
the authors failed to consider brain tumours in some (middle brain) locations
the authors included some mobile phone users in the unexposed group
there were opportunities for bias
four authors had conflicts of interest that were not declared.
‘In our opinion, the results as reported in the MOBI-Kids paper seem uninterpretable and should be dismissed,’ the authors wrote.
They recommended that the data for this study should be made publicly available so that it can be properly analysed in the future.
