In a somewhat measured response to questioning on the safety of mobile phones, retired World Health Organisation (WHO) General Director and Prime Minister of Norway, Dr. Gro Harlem Bruntland gives her opinion on how mobile phones are affecting people’s health.
She is somewhat philosophical about society’s dependence on mobile phone technology, recognising the difficulties of eliminating this source of radiation any time soon.
Gro states that for 25 years she has reacted to mobile phone radiation and cannot hold a mobile phone to her head, preferring to hold it at waist level and texting instead. She also warns people against carrying a mobile phone in their pocket and tells the story of a man who developed a skin rash in the area adjoining his mobile phone pocket.
