In the largest case-control study to date of the relation between wireless phone use and the risk of brain tumors in children, adolescents, and young adults, researchers found “no evidence of a causal association between wireless phone use and [brain tumors]in young people.” MOBI-Kids (2022) is a multinational case-control study conducted in 14 countries over a period of rapidly increasing use of mobile communication devices in young people. The vast majority of study participants were regular users of wireless phones and the study included substantially higher numbers of those who used phones for 10 years or more than in previous studies. The study reported “no increased risk in the highest dose group and no RF dose-related increased risk in the longest term users,” and its findings “are consistent with the overall INTERPHONE study results which found no overall increase in risk in relation to the level of mobile phone use.”
The Food and Drug Administration continually monitors scientific evidence regarding the impact of radiofrequency energy and human health. In February 2020 they published a “Review of Published Literature between 2008 and 2018 of Relevance to Radiofrequency Radiation and Cancer.” According to the report: “Based on the FDA’s ongoing evaluation, the available epidemiological and cancer incidence data continues to support the Agency’s determination that there are no quantifiable adverse health effects in humans caused by exposures at or under the current cell phone exposure limits.”
Experts agree that stories about a link between 5G and COVID-19 are not true. Here’s what you should know about the misinformation circulating about 5G.

Experts agree that wireless devices have not been shown to pose a public health risk. Here’s what you should know about radiofrequency (RF) energy and wireless devices.
While millimeter wave frequencies are new to wireless networks, they are extremely well understood by the international scientific community. The IEEE, which the FCC describes as “internationally recognized for [its] expertise in this area,” has assembled this list of dozens and dozens of studies on millimeter wave frequencies.
The international scientific consensus is that there are no known health risks from RF energy at the low levels approved for everyday consumer use. Here’s what the experts say.
