A new journal paper is out by Vini Khurana, Lennart Hardell, Joris Everaert, Alicja Bortkiewicz, Michael Carlberg and Mikko Ahonen. This paper was published in the International Journal of Occupational and Environmental Health. Update 25th August 2010: The PDF.
We looked at epidemiological studies of mobile phone base stations and found out that 8 out of 10 studies indicate increased prevalence of adverse neurobehavioral symptoms or cancer in populations living at distances < 500 meters from base stations.
"While the mechanism(s) by which base station EMFs might cause neurobehavioural symptoms remain(s) conjectural, it is notable that Science Magazine has recently acknowledged that there are several peer-reviewed papers from laboratories in at least seven countries showing that cell phone or similar LEMFs can, contrary to the expectations of such “non-ionizing” sources, damage or structurally modify DNA" .
Definitely, comprehensive epidemiological studies of longterm mobile phone base station exposure are urgently required to more definitively understand its health impact.
I would personally hope that independent research of base stations would be supported and not hindered by corruption, narrow-mindedness or political games.
