The question receiving most attention is whether RF field exposure is involved in carcinogenesis. The previous opinion stated that, based on epidemiological findings, mobile phone use for less than ten years is not associated with cancer incidence. Regarding longer use, it was deemed difficult to make an estimate since few persons had used mobile phones for more than ten years.
Since then, a few additional epidemiological studies have been published. Unfortunately they do not significantly extend the exposure period. These studies do not change this assessment.
New improved studies on the association between RF fields from broadcast transmitters and childhood cancer provide evidence against such an association.
Animal studies show that RF fields similar to those from mobile phones, alone or in combination with known carcinogenic factors,
