Mobile phones: 'Still no evidence of harm to health'

There is still no evidence mobile phones harm human health, says a major safety review for the UK's Health Protection Agency (HPA).
Scientists looked at hundreds of studies of mobile exposure and found no conclusive links to cancer risk, brain function or infertility.
However, they said monitoring should continue because little was known about long-term effects.

'No evidence' of mobile phone cancer risk
There is still "no convincing evidence" that mobile phones can adversely affect human health, according to a major new report released today.
The comprehensive review of scientific studies, by the Health Protection Agency's Independent Advisory Group on Non-ionising Radiation (Agnir), states that despite the "substantial" amount of recent research the only established risk is using a phone while driving.
