handsets 100 times worse than mobiles, say experts.
a cordless phone in your house can be 100 times more of a health risk
than using a mobile. The popular phones constantly blast out high
levels of radiation - even when they are not in use. Landlines are
widely thought a safer option than mobiles. But researchers in Sweden
now warn cordless phones are far more likely to cause brain tumours
than today's mobiles.
from a cordless phone's charger can be as high as six volts per metre -
twice as strong as those found with a 100 metres of mobile masts. Two
metres away from the charger the radiation is still as high as 2.5
volts per metre - that's 50 times what scientists regard as a safe
At a metre away the danger is multiplied 120 times - and it only drops
to a safe 0.05 volts per metre when you are 100 metres away from the
phone. Because of the way cordless phones work, the charger constantly
emits radiation at full strength even when the phone is not in use -
and so does the handset when it is off the charger.
The most common cancers caused by such radiation are leukemias. But
breast cancer, brain tumours, insomnia, headaches and erratic behaviour
in kids have also been linked. Those with chargers close to their beds
are subjected to radiation while they sleep.
Phone watchdog Powerwatch, using a testing device called the Sensory
Perspective Electrosmog Detector, even found electromagnetic fields as
strong as three volts per metre in a bedroom above a room holding a
group's director, Alasdair Philips said: "As ill-health effects have
been found at levels of only 0.06 volts per metre, this is very
concerning. It's likely everyone in a house with a cordless phone will
be constantly exposed to levels higher than this."
shock Swedish report - by scientists Lennart Hardell, Michael Carlbery
and Kjell Hansson Mild - is backed up by many medical experts who
believe cordless phones are a health risk.
Harley Street practitioner Dr David Dowson said: "Having a cordless
phone is like having a mobile mast in your house. I'd recommend anyone
who has one to switch to a plug-in phone."
BT's health advisor, John Collins, disagreed. He said: "There's no
conclusive scientific evidence linking the radiation to any of the
symptoms experienced. The evidence is that it doesn't do us any harm.
