Indians are more likely to absorb radiation from mobile phones due to their low body mass index and the less fat content in their bodies, a leading health expert said Tuesday.
Government should step up efforts to spread awareness about mobile radiations for allaying fears of possible ill effects on health, a DoT committee has said.
Amid concerns over radiation from cell phone towers, government today called for research proposals to study the possible impact of electromagnetic frequency radiation on humans and living organisms.
Last year, a World Health Organization report found that cellphone radiation could be carcinogenic.
Mobile phones sold in Delhi may soon prominently display the level of radiation emitted by them as the city government plans to make such tags on handsets mandatory.
