100 times worse than mobiles, say experts.
Having 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.
Emissions 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 level.
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
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 cordless phone.
The 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."
The 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
But 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. We're a responsible company and abide
by all the guidelines set down by recognised experts."
