Sense About Science has published Making Sense of Radiation for the tinfoil hat brigade and newspaper journalists to ignore.
In summary it says:
- Speculative stories about health risks and RF radiation often go uncorrected, leaving a trail of confusion that prevents public discussion and policy from moving forward.
- To counter this they wanted to share some insights, like the fact that different types of radiation exist, that â€˜cancer clustersâ€™ are unusual and that by picturing what radiation is like you see that the â€˜electrosmogâ€™ metaphor is misleading.
- Current research does not show that EMFs from mobile phones, masts and Wi-Fi cause harmful effects.
- The scientists had a look at a range of products claiming to protect us from EMFs and concluded that they exploited peopleâ€™s fears, were unnecessary and generally did not do what they promised.
