The Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority in Finland has found indications that the microwave radiation from mobile telephones can have biological effects.

Researchers found a structural protein which underwent changes when exposed to cell phone radiation.

The findings confirm reports from 2002 according to which radiation from mobile telephones could influence the crucial support structure of cells.

According to the researchers, more study is needed to establish whether or not the changes that have been noted might affect the brain.

The Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority says that it is not possible, on the basis of the findings, to assess the impact that mobile phone radiation would have on health.
