Forskning fra det Europæiske Miljøagentur:
Allerede i 2007 havde det Europæiske miljøagentur indsamlet nok data til at kunne udsende følgende advarsel mod bla mobilstråling:
"There are many examples of the failure to use the precautionary principle in the past, which have resulted in serious and often irreversible damage to health and environments. Appropriate, precautionary and proportionate actions taken now to avoid plausible and potentially serious threats to health from EMF are likely to be seen as prudent and wise from future perspectives." EEA, 2007
Advarslen blev fulgt i 2009 af en endnu stærkere advarsel:
"The evidence is now strong enough, using the precautionary principle, to justify the following steps: 1. For governments, the mobile phone industry, and the public to take all reasonable measures to reduce exposures to EMF, especially to radio frequencies from mobile phones, and particularly the exposures to children and young adults who seem to be most at risk from head tumours. (...) 2. To reconsider the scientific basis for the present EMF exposure standards which have serious limitations such as reliance on the contested thermal effects paradigm; and simplistic assumptions about the complexities of radio frequency exposures." ---EEA, 2009
I 2011 opdateres og uddybes advarslen endnu en gang. Direktøren for EEA, Professor Jacqueline McGlade fremhæver blandt andet i en diskussion om sammenhængen mellem graden af evidens og forsigtighedsprincippet:
"It follows from the above that statements such as “there is no convincing evidence that X causes Y” (frequently found in reviews of evidence) are devoid of practical meaning, unless the implicit assumption, which is buried in that statement, is made explicit ie that the evidence for causality (the highest strength possible) is not convincing to the scientists making that statement." ---EEA, 2011a, p7
Sammenhængen mellem finansiering og resultater er også bemærket af forskere fra det Europæiske Miljøagentur:
"We have noted the increasing evidence of “funding bias” in scientific research whereby results outcomes are strongly linked to source of funding. This observation is based on evidence from pharmaceuticals, tobacco, lead, asbestos, BPA, and EMF, as well as on evidence from other fields such as CBA and Transport construction project cost estimations." ---EEA/David Gee, 2011, p6
I samme dokument gives endvidere endnu en opfordring til at beskytte befolkningen mod eksponering for mikrobølgestråling:
Current guidelines on EMF safety from IEEE and ICNIRP (endorsed by the EU) are only based on short term EMF exposures that are high enough to cause thermal effects. These are inadequate to provide protection to the public against long term effects from lower levels of exposure. Neither do they account for the pulse-like exposures modulated at low frequencies that are common from the modern 2G and 3G appliances. ---(EEA/David Gee, 2011, p15)
EEA står i øvrigt ikke alene med advarslerne. Den internationale ekspertgruppe ICEMS (The International Commission for Electromagnetic Safety), udgav i 2010 "Non thermal effects and mechanisms of interaction between EMF and living matter". Heri præsenteres den hidtil mest omfattende og dybdegående analyse af problemet. Det meste af udgivelsen er beregnet for forskere - og derfor affattet i detaljeret videnskabeligt sprogbrug, men i et indledende kapitel opsummeres rapportens konklusion i sætningen:
(...) it is advisable to limit exposure to electromagnetic fields as much as possible. This is especially true for children and adolescents, the most vulnerable segments of the population, (...) ---(Guiliani, L. & Soffritti, M. 2010, pVII)
