Epidemiological evidence for a health risk from mobile phone base stations

" This new study partially confirms our preliminary results about microwave sickness resulting from exposure to emissions from GSM mobile phone BSs. Fatigue, irritability, lack of appetite, sleep troubles, depression and lack of concentration were especially related with GSM exposure.

These results were independent of the main sociodemographic variables, other EMF exposures and anxiety about being irradiated. Nevertheless, we confirm that apprehension about modern technology could predict some symptoms, especially those related with sleep problems.

Our results agree with those who claimed that by distorting perceptions of risk, disproportionate precaution might paradoxically lead to illness that would not otherwise occur. [39] However, health changes related with GSM exposure seem to occur in a manner unrelated with those fears. Finally, exposure was very low during the period and also very low in comparison with Spanish recommendations [40] and international guidelines. [41]."
