Scientist at the University of Essex tested 44 people who reported symptoms of sensitivity to mobile phone technology, and another 114 people who did not report any health problems. Both groups were exposed to a 3G (UMTS) signal, and neither reported increased symptoms of sensitivity.
This study discovered that sensitive individuals did not report more or greater severity of symptoms than the control group. The results of the study is consistent with the only other published study of cell phone emissions in Environmental Health Perspectives in 2006.
This is the largest study ever undertaken by researchers, and was funded by Mobile Telecommunications and Health Research (MTHR). The results was published on July 29 in Environmental Health Perspectives journal. This is good news for anyone who is concern with the possible short-term health effects of cellphone emissions.
