Mobile Phone Inquiry Widens
Herald Sun
April 6, 2000

New questions have been raised about the "hands-free" equipment for mobile phones. This question will be added to the investigations of an Australian Senate subcommittee inquiring into the possible connection between cancer and mobile telephones. The kits have been marketed as a safeguard against radiation. There is no agreement in the scientific community about the dangers to users, and there are currently eight studies on the issue under way in Australia. The Consumers Association is demanding in April 2000 that the industry release any information, but the industry group, the Australian Mobile Telecommunications Association, insists there is no evidence linking handsets to brain tumours.
