Yes. The effects of electromagnetic fields on human beings have been researched thoroughly over the last few decades. On the basis of this comprehensive knowledge base, different acknowledged expert groups have performed appraisals of research into mobile communications and health and repeatedly endorsed the exposure limits. Numerous expert bodies and authorities were unanimous in their conclusion that the state of research does not give cause to question the safety of using mobile communications provided that the exposure limits are complied. Among others these are the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2011, EU's independent scientific advisory committee SCENIHR (2014), International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) and the German Commission on Radiological Protection (SSK) both in 2011, the UK Research Program (MTHR) in 2014, Swedish Radiation Protection Authority (SSI) in 2014, Health Protection Agency, UK in 2012 or the Health Council Netherlands in 2013.
