A document has been circulated within the standards community by someone
at EIA/TIA on the above subject, summarizing a recently issued Report. I
don't think this is in the actual public domain, so I am just forwarding
a brief extract here.
The Swedish Radiation Protection Authority has engaged two
internationally well-known epidemiologists to review published studies
on the relationship between the use of cellular telephones and cancer
risk. They are Dr. John D. Boice, Jr. and Dr. Joseph K. McLaughlin from
the International Epidemiology Institute, USA.
In their review, no consistent evidence was observed for increased risk
of brain cancer, meningioma, acoustic neurinoma, ocular melanoma, or
salivary gland cancer, examined over a wide range of exposure measures,
including type of phone, duration of use, frequency of use, total
cumulative hours of use, tumor location and laterality (concurrence of
tumor location with hand normally used during phone conversations).
