The omnipresence of electrical appliances in everyday life is cause for concern. To date, no scientific study has been able to demonstrate harmful effects due to non-ionizing electromagnetic fields. Some studies have revealed statistical correlations, without, however, being able to explain the link between cause and effect. If in doubt, apply the precautionary principle.

Measurement of electromagnetic fields

It is possible to carry out tests to measure radiation from mobile phone antennas:

If there are reasons to justify it Elia, the electricity distribution network, can carry out measurements near their high voltage power lines.

For further useful addresses, see the brochure “Your guide in the electromagnetic landscape” (only in French and Dutch).

Sciensano is a member of the Superior Health Council and advises on the risks associated with mobile communication and other types of non-ionizing radiation, in particular radio frequencies.
