Wireless Radiation and Human Health Policies: How Reliable is the Evidence?

Wireless Radiation and Human Health Policies: How Reliable is the Evidence?

Dariusz Leszczynski, PhD, DSc, Adjunct Professor, Department of Biosciences, University of Helsinki, Finland

Presentation at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia, Dec 9, 2015

“In my opinion, the currently available scientific evidence is sufficient to upgrade the carcinogenicity of cell phone radiation from the possible carcinogen (Group 2B) to the probable carcinogen (Group 2A)”  Dariusz Leszczynski

Game changers published after the WHO's International Agency for Research on Cancer classified radio frequency radiation a possible carcinogen in 2011, strengthening the health risk evidence:

  • The currently available scientific data does not prove conclusively that exposures to cell phone radiation causes cancer
  • The currently available scientific data shows that health risk is not only possible but even probable
  • The scientific data pointing towards probable health risk was strengthened since 2011 IARC classification of cell phone radiation as a possible carcinogen
  • The currently available ‘inconclusive’ scientific evidence does not mean that the possibility or probability of health risk is negligible
  • It is false and misleading to claim that there is no health risk associated with the use of wireless technology because of the inadequate science
  • It is likely that a sub-population of users of the wireless technology will develop some kind of health problems caused by radiation exposure–the sensitive sub-population
