WHO Updates Mobile Phones and health fact sheet

The World Health Organization (WHO) updated its factsheet on mobile phones and health in October 2014 and has not changed its overall position that mobile phone use does not cause adverse health effects.

“A large number of studies have been performed over the last two decades to assess whether mobile phones pose a potential health risk. To date, no adverse health effects have been established for mobile phone use,” the updated factsheet continues to say.

Minor changes to the WHO’s factsheet included an update to the number of global mobile phone subscribers from 4.6 billion in 2009 to 6.9 billion in 2014.
