Go ahead for wi-fi study

12th October 2007

The Health Protection Agency (HPA) has said it will examine how wireless networks affect public health.

The government research will attempt to pinpoint average exposure to the radiation produced by wireless systems. The HPA said that radiation emitted by wireless devices was low and within recommended international guidelines.

Professor Pat Troop, chief executive of the agency, said in a statement that there was "no scientific evidence to date" that wireless systems could have a detrimental effect on public health.
