Phone mast allergy ‘in the mind’

Link: BBC NEWS | Health | Phone mast allergy ‘in the mind’

The BBC are reporting some interesting results from a recent study into so called ‘phone mast allergy’.

Mobile phone masts are not responsible for the symptoms of ill health some blame them for, a major UK study says. Dozens of people who believed the masts trigger symptoms such as anxiety, nausea and tiredness could not detect if signals were on or off in trials.

But when they thought the signal was on they reported more distress, suggesting the problem has a psychological basis.

Of course this doesn’t mean sticking your head next to a mobile phone antenna all day won’t give you a cracking headache, but it’s interesting news all the same.
