I looked at chronic, 24/7 exposure. So, I reviewed research papers focusing on:
- Mobile phone base stations (cell towers) + TETRA
- AM / FM Radio + Analog /digital TV masts + Radar
This review is available at:
I listed research papers with both positive and negative findings. I also included occupational exposure data and nature related data.

Increased leukemia and lymphoma rates come up regularly in FM / AM Radio + Television transmitter research papers (8 out of 10 papers). Mobile phone base stations are a newer phenomenon and the symptoms and illnesses seem to be more versatile ranging from sleep problems to neurological illnesses and breast cancer ( 10 out of 13 papers indicated increased risk ). It is difficult to compare these papers with each other, because not every paper has radiation power density measurements included.After all these findings, the WHO officially announces:
“Considering the very low exposure levels and research results collected to date, there is no convincing scientific evidence that the weak RF signals from base stations and wireless networks cause adverse health effects.“ .
Definitely, WHO International EMF Project folks are playing with the word ‘evidence’.
