The newspaper Web site SheffieldToday.co.uk recently carried an article with comments from Professor Tony Barker at Royal Hallamshire Hospital in the United Kingdom. Professor Barker, who has spent 30 years researching the biological effects of electromagnetic fields, said he has found no evidence to suggest, "mobile phone masts or handsets are a health hazard."
The article “Expert Rejects Phone Mast Fear” quotes Professor Barker saying there are big TV and broadcast radio transmitters all around us, emitting up to 500,000 watts, 10,000 times more power than a typical 50 watt cellular base station. (U.S. TV broadcast transmitters can operate at effective radiated powers of up to 5 million watts.)
