Report says cell phones have no short-term health risks

London (England) – Mobile phone usage has no significant effects on your brain for the first 10 years, according to a new report from a British research group.

The Mobile Telecommunications and Health Research Programme (MTHR) said it found no association between cell phone radiation and brain damage.  

The results from the six-year program were “reassuring but there is still a need for more research, especially to check that no effects emerge from longer-term phone use from adults and from use by children,” said Lawrie Challis, a chairman of the research organization.

The group has received around $17.5 million from the government and sources within the cell phone industry, and according to the report, 10 years is not adequate time for the entire process of cancer inception.

Many multi-year studies on the effects of cell phones have been wrapping up in the past several months. The MTHR’s findings corresponds with a University of Essex study released in July, but a study from Israel’s Weizmann Institute of Science said cancer onset could be triggered in 10 minutes in a report released earlier this month.
