Europe wants mobile transmitters kept away from children and hospitals

The European Parliament has adopted a report that recommends GSM antennas and high-voltage power lines are kept away from schools, crèches, retirement homes and health care institutions. It’s all a bit vague; the report talks of keeping them “a specific distance determined by scientific criteria” and acknowledges that “the scientific community has reached no definite conclusions”. Proposed actions include making more people aware of the potential risks of electromagnetic fields. [Sources: TheRegister.co.uk; PublicTechnology.net; European Parliament pdf; press release]
