Jülich Report: Keep Mobile Phone Calls short

Keep mobile phone calls short, not in a car and not at a far distance from the base station.

This precautionary warning is given by Prof. Dr. Maria Blettner (Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz), Prof. Dr. Karl-Heinz Jöckel (University Clinic, Essen) and Prof. Dr. Andreas Stang (Martin Luther University, Halle) in a report by the Jülich Institute in Jülich, Germany. Together with 22 other experts they studied the scientific literature between 2000 and 2004 about the effects of mobile telephone systems on well-being and health.

The warning by the German experts is more strict than by Sir William Stewart of the British National Radiation Protection Board (NRPB) in January 2005. He said children up to 8 years old should not use a mobile phone. The precautionary warning by Blettner, Jöckel enStang goes for everybody, young and old. It is based on the renewed uncertainty about the risk of cancer in the long term. The warning coincides with news from the University Hospital in Orebro, Sweden, that mobile users in rural areas (generally at a far distance from the base station) have four times more brain tumors after five years than mobile users in cities.

The radiation of a mobile telephone has effect on the central nervous system. It itensifies the neuronal activity and the radiation influences the cerebral blood stream and the EEG, so it has an impact on the brain. That is confirmed by Dr. Peter Achermann and psychologist Sabine Regel of Zürich University. It seems thatpulse-modulated radiation has the most severe effects. They write that radiation has also an effect on the cognitive performance. The reaction time is shorter or prolonged and the task performance is better or worse, depending on the parameters of the radiation. The same has been found by many investigations before, also by the TNO-Cofam research in 2003, ordered by the government of The Netherlands. The experts agree with the TNO-Cofam report, that the effects have to be non-thermal. They can not be triggered by thermal heating.

Mobile telephone systems also damage DNA, the genetic material. That is confirmed in the report by Dr. R. Gminski, Dr. K. Schlatterer, Dr. R.G. Fitzner and Prof. Dr. R. Tauber of the Berlin Charité-University in Berlin and by Dr. Myrtill Simkó of Rostock University.

The experts suppose that the radiation of mobile telephone systems probably has no consequences for young, healthy adults. They write that this opinion does not has a scientific base. The radiation, possibly combined with other factors, could have consequences for other groups. The experts did not find a link between the radiation and well-being, except for headaches and eventually problems with concentration and remembrance. Dr. Heike Seitz, Dr. Doris Stinner and Prof. Dr. Thomas Eikmann of Giessen University state that non-specific complaints are so common, that there is no proof of a causal relationship with the radiation of mobile systems. However, Dr. Martin Röösli of Bern University adds, that the absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

The experts have studied relevant scientific research between 2000 and 2004 only. They did not pay attention to the many individual and independent stories by people suffering from radiofrequency radiation by puls-modulated wireless communications systems like GSM, UMTS, DECT, WLAN, WIFI, C2000 and TETRA. Their complaints however fit in perfectly well with effects on the central nervous system, intensified neuronal activity and influence on the brain. The damage of DNA fits in with the findings of epidemiologic research, pointing at a higher risk for cancer in the long run. The experts however write that the epidemiologic investigations speak against each other, so more research is needed.

The report of the Jülich Institute has been ordered and financed by T-Mobile, a provider of mobile communication. It has been presented to the public on May 9th, 2005. The whole report is written in German and consists of a general part and eight specific parts A to H. It can be found here
