Europakommisjonen og Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks (SCENIHR) har nylig gått gjennom all forskning rundt helsefarer ved elektromagnetisk stråling. Dette er ment som en oppdatering av tidligere uttalelser fra 2009:

The purpose of this Opinion is to update the SCENIHR Opinions of 2009 in light of newly available information and to give special consideration to areas where important knowledge gaps were identified in the previous Opinions. In addition, biophysical interaction mechanisms and the potential role of co-exposures to environmental stressors have been addressed

De har nå gått gjennom mer enn 700 nye studier (de fleste publisert etter 2008) for å se om det er dukket opp nye data som gir grunnlag for å endre tidligere konklusjon. Det har det ikke, og deres oppdaterte konklusjoner kan deles i fire:

The results of current scientific research do not link exposure to electromagnetic fields below the limits suggested by the EU legislation with adverse health problems.

Generelt sett viser summen av alle studier at ingenting tyder på at elektromagnetisk stråling under nåværende grenseverdier medfører noen helserisiko.

Overall, the epidemiological studies on mobile phone radiofrequency EMF exposure do not show an increased risk of brain tumours. Furthermore, they do not indicate an increased risk for other cancers of the head and neck region.

De finner ingen tegn på at mobilstråling kan gi kreft i hjernen. De finner heller ingen tegn på forhøyet risiko for andre typer kreft i hode eller hals/nakkeområde.

The association of EMF with an increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease that was suggested by previous studies was not confirmed by new studies that did not find any link.

De finner ingen tegn på at elektromagnetisk stråling kan forårsake Alzheimers sykdom.

Epidemiological studies link exposure to Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) fields, from long-term living in close proximity to power lines for example, to a higher rate of childhood leukaemia, which is a rare blood cancer. This correlation has neither been explained nor supported by animal and cellular studies. So far, research findings were not able to find a possible mechanism to explain this association. More research is needed to confirm or exclude a possible causal association.
