Model Mobile phone use and base station exposure to residents of the UK and analysis of media coverage on potential health issues

Evaluation of media coverage on health issues related to the use of mobile phones and base station sites.

This does not indicate that RF exposure is or is not a health hazard, only that media tend to focus on selling press on certain issues of public interest rather than reporting facts.
