Mobile Phones, Base Station and Health

By 2020, we expect that nearly everything will be connected, with an estimated 50 billion connected devices, things and objects supporting almost every aspect of our daily lives. ITU, October 2015
Extensive research has been performed to investigate whether mobile phones and base stations pose a potential health risk, including in Malaysia.  All reviews conducted so far have indicated that exposures below the limits recommended in the ICNIRP EMF guidelines, covering the full frequency range from 0-300 GHz, do not produce any known adverse health effect.  However, there are still gaps in knowledge that requires further research before long-term health risk assessments can be made.
