star this property answer text <p>Public Health England (PHE) advises the Government on all aspects of public health, including exposure to radio waves. The advice covers the appropriate standards of protection for the general population. Central to PHE advice is that exposures to radio waves should comply with the guidelines published by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP). ICNIRP is formally recognised by the World Health Organization.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>PHE routinely reviews the research into the effects of radiofrequencies on health including the effects on young people. The most recent PHE-backed review was undertaken by its own independent expert Advisory Group on Non-ionising Radiation (AGNIR) and published at the end of April 2012. The AGNIR report considered whether there was evidence for health effects occurring in relation to exposures below the ICNIRP levels. The overall conclusion was that, “although a substantial amount of research has been conducted in this area, there is no convincing evidence that radio wave exposures below guideline levels cause health effects in either adults or children.” PHE constantly reviews emerging research for any changes to the conclusions of this report.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>In addition, the Department is supporting a research programme into the use of mobile phones by young people and PHE is participating in international studies on children’s health and radiowaves.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
