Magnetic fields generated by mobile phones probable to protect human health: Research

ISLAMABAD: According to research from the University of Manchester the magnetic fields generated by mobile phones and power lines are probable to be safe to human health.
Several past studies have suggested that the magnetic fields created by phones, high-voltage power lines and other electrical equipment are harmful for humans, Xinhua reported.
Although some later studies have failed to find such a link, the International Agency for Research on Cancer categorised low frequency magnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic.
New study looked at how WMFs affected a protein class called flavoproteins, which are key to processing healthy human functions such as the nervous system, DNA repair and the biological clock.
“More work on other possible links will need to be done but this study definitely takes us nearer to the point where we can say that power-lines, mobile phones and other similar devices are likely to be safe for humans,” said Prof Nigel Scrutton, co-lead author of the paper.
