A four-year study of cell phone base station transmissions funded by three of Japan’s largest cellular carriers (NTT DoCoMo, KDDI Corp. and Softbank Mobile) has concluded that no risk is posed to human health according to an article on Macworld News.
The study, which began in November of 2002, gathered data by generating signals identical to those used by WCDMA (wideband code division multiple access) base stations, the most common 3G phone technology used in Japan and other countries. These signals, which were up to 10 times more powerful than the limits allowed by Japanese law, were reported to have no harmful effects on cell samples.
The study contradicts a widely publicized Dutch study performed in 2003 by the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research that found that people exposed to radio fields from 3G base stations experienced symptoms such as nausea, tingling sensations and dizziness while the same effects didn’t occur with signals from older GSM base stations.
