experts were speaking at a panel discussion on “mobile network and public health” organised by the coai a leading mobile communications association.

they stressed that people who believe that radiations are really harmful are not fully aware and should understand this perception clearly.

“ionising radiation causes damages to the molecules - they break t chemical bonds and can cause health hazards. but non-ionising radiation from mobile tower and antenna do not cause the breakage of bonds and do not cause damage to the molecules” said r.v. hosur senior professor chemical science tata institute of fundamental research.

“a number research and studies have been conducted around the globe to ascertain if there is any relationship between the radiation emission from the mobile phone and cancer. however there is no enough evidence providing mobile phones causes cancer in humans” he added.

“the radiation waves used in the mobile phones technology are probably at the lowest end of the electromagnetic spectrum and do not cause any health hazard” said rakesh jalali radiation oncologist at tata medical centre.
