Study Raises Health Worries
Wednesday, March 15th 2006
Radio signals for the next generation of mobile phone services can cause headaches and nausea, according to a study conducted by three Dutch ministries.
The study, the first of its kind, compared the impact of radiation from base stations used for the current mobile phone network with that of base stations for new third-generation (3G) networks for fast data transfer.
"When the test group was exposed to 3G base station signals, there was a significant impact. They felt tingling sensations, got headaches and felt nauseous," a spokesman for the Dutch Economics Ministry said. There was no negative impact from signals for current mobile networks.
Government ministers said follow-up research was needed to confirm the findings and to look at any longer-term health effects and biological causes.
Phone vendor Ericsson claimed there was no scientific evidence to prove the study's assertions.
