"Radiation from mobiles and mobile towers pose no threat to the health or cause cancer as it is commonly believed," DMA president Anil Agarwal said at a press conference here.

"The radiation waves are too weak too cause such a deadly disease and moreover there are no empirical findings to establish that mobile tower radiation causes cancer or any such disease," he said, adding the medical experts from the DMA have come to this conclusion after reviewing the study done by the World Health Organization (WHO).

The WHO conducted a research where they had consulted 4,50,000 cellphone users in the past 13 years, but had not been able to provide support for any relationship between the emission of radiation from mobile phones and cancer, said P. Ramakrishna, a consultant on electro-magnetic fields (EMF).

Even the study done by US' National Cancer Institute shows no increased risk for brain tumours from cell phone use, he added.
