ABSTRACT
The public has been reading stories in the press of mobile phone safety. In this article, fears may be allayed because it focuses on the possibility that all mobile phones will have to be tested to medical standards. Every year sees a new piece of research into the effects of phone radiation levels on the human brain and never yet has there been any conclusive evidence to show that the effect is harmful. The first development is the appearance of a Specific Absorption Rate number on the phone. It is a measure not of the amount of radiation the phone emits but the amount absorbed by the human head when the phone is operating at full power. The tests are not complex in themselves but they are set out in unambiguous detail by the imminent standard from the European body that devises these things, the CENELEC. The more common health measure adopted by users is the earpice.
