Agentia Internationala pentru Cercetare in domeniul Cancerului (IARC), din cadrul Organizatiei Mondiale a Sanatatii, a anuntat includerea radiatiilor provenite de la telefoanele mobile in clasa de risc 2B – ”posibil cancerigene pentru oameni”.

 Dr Jonathan Samet (University of Southern California, USA), overall Chairman of the Working Group, indicated that "the evidence, while still accumulating, is strong enough to support a conclusion and the 2B classification. The conclusion means that there could be some risk, and therefore we need to keep a close watch for a link between cell phones and cancer risk."

Aceasta clasificare, 2B, inseamna ca riscul este posibil, dar nu probabil, studiile nearatand o legatura cauzala directa intre folosirea telefonului mobil si aparitia cancerului cerebral. IARC precizeaza ca sunt necesare cercetari suplimentare in domeniu.

"Given the potential consequences for public health of this classification and findings," said IARC Director Christopher Wild, "it is important that additional research be conducted into the long?term, heavy use of mobile phones. Pending the availability of such information, it is important to take pragmatic measures to reduce exposure such as hands?free devices or texting. "

In acest context este util de precizat ca în clasa de risc 2B se afla 266 de factori si substante, printre care se numara cafeaua si muraturile. Intelegem ca unii utilizatori de telefoane mobile sunt îngrijorati, de aceea subliniem ca actualele norme de siguranta in domeniu (SAR) sunt valide.

Totusi, pentru cei care doresc sa reduca si mai mult expunerea la campurile electromagnetice generate de telefoanele mobile, Organizatia Mondiala a Sanatatii recomanda folosirea dispozitivelor hands free si reducerea numarului si a duratei convorbirilor.
