Truckers calling home can worry a little less about their
health – a group of scientists in England says there is no evidence that cell
phones cause cancer.
The announcement came in a release from the National Radiological Protection Board in
“The biological and epidemiological evidence does not
suggest cancer causation, in particular from mobile phone use, nor any other
adverse health effect from radiofrequency exposures at levels below
guidelines,” the scientists said in the release.
However, the scientists did hedge a little, saying that
since cell phones haven’t been in use for very long, there is still a
possibility of health effects. Additional study is necessary to determine the
long-term risks, they said.
According to the Land Line Readers Survey, 88 percent of
truckers have a cell phone.
