EMR guidelines updated by Government

14th February 2020

Updated guidelines have been issued by Public Health England on reducing exposure to electro-magnetic radiation (EMR) from mobile phones.  The guidance introduction states that "...uncertainties in the science suggest some additional level of precaution is warranted".  Excessive use of mobile phones by children is cautioned against and it recommends that adults move phones away from their body when using them.  As untested technologies such as 5G are being lauded as something we just cannot do without, scientists worldwide are becoming increasingly concerned about the rapidly increasing levels of EMRs we're being exposed to.
