EMF and Health

The Karolinska Inst. in Stockholm held a press conference yesterday 13 Oct 2004)on the effects of NMT mobil telephone use in a group of Swedes who have used the older NMT system (=Nordic Mobile Telephon by system) for more than 10 years. The study did not address GPS or GPRS phones. According to the Danish press "people who have used bilile phones over 10 years have nearly double the risk for developing tumors on the hearing nerves".

I enclose the pre-pub article from Dr. Fechting which was published on PubMed this week, and the press release in Swedish. I have queried them about more details, and will post them as they become available.

The subject group consisted of 150 people, who had tumors in the cochlear nerves, and the control group consisted of 600 people. Considering the population of Sweden is over 8 million, this is a very small subject group!

Electric and magnetic fields are ubiquitous in the modern society, and concerns have been expressed regarding possible adverse effects of these exposures. This review covers epidemiologic research on health effects of exposures to static, extremely low-frequency (ELF), and radio frequency (RF) fields. Research on ELF fields has been performed for more than two decades, and the methodology and quality of studies have improved over time. Studies have consistently shown increased risk for childhood leukemia associated with ELF magnetic fields, whereas ELF fields most likely are not a risk factor for breast cancer and cardiovascular disease. There are still inadequate data for other outcomes. More recently, focus has shifted toward RF exposures from mobile telephony. There are no persuasive data suggesting a health risk, but this research field is still immature with regard to the quantity and quality of available data. This technology is constantly changing and there is a need for continued research on this issue. Almost no epidemiologic data are available for static fields. Expected online publication date for the Annual Review of Public Health Volume 26 is March 17, 2005. Please see
