1 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research1 Data regarding mobile phones and health as referred to in held or future meetings or publications Örjan Hallberg, M.Sc. E.E. Hallberg Independent Research Polkavägen 14B, Trångsund Sweden Note. This set of data may be changed, altered, expanded or reduced at any time depending on my needs.

2 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research2 The purpose of the study zTo see if changes in health characteristics fit the roll-out of GSM 1800 in Sweden y- Does it fit in time? y- Does it fit geographically?

3 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research3 The problem we see zHealth care costs are booming zThe mortality improvement among young people has come to an end zSparsely populated areas are unhealthy zIllness recovery times are increasing zAccidents happen more frequently z...

4 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research4 Two questions regarding GSM zWhen did the mobile phone use really take off? zWhere in the country do mobile phones radiate the highest average output power?

5 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research5 How much do we talk by the mobile phone each year?

6 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research6 What is the average output pulse power from the phones?

7 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research7 A GSM coverage model was tuned to the data from Telia/Ericsson

8 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research8 Sick-days statistics from 1981 looks different...

9 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research9 But the sick-days statistics from 2002 fits very well

10 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research10 So, the sickness in Sweden seems to relate to the GSM coverage

11 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research11 And, funny enough, so it does also in Denmark and Norway

12 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research12 So, sick-days seem to relate to the output power from the mobile phone

13 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research13 Some drugs sell like hell… e.g. Antidepressives

14 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research14 Pain killers on the rise...

15 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research15 The mortality trend for the age group years was broken in 1997

16 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research16 The number of sick-registered started to increase in 1997

17 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research17 Exact when? August 1997 (?)

18 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research18 For each county a specific break point was identified.

19 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research19 A report from PTS about the telecom market in 1997: zDet nya frekvensbandet, 1800 MHz, togs i drift av Telia i slutet av året. De övriga operatörerna har byggt upp detta nät och förväntas ta det i drift vid halvårsskiftet zThe new frequency band, 1800 MHz, was brought into use at the end of the year. The other operators have finished this network and are expected to take it into use in mid 1998.

20 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research20 Company health statistics got worse in 1997

21 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research21 Traffic injuries in Stockholm are increasing zRefer to Figure 4 in: Hallberg, Johansson. Does GSM 1800 MHz affect the public health in Sweden? Proceedings of Biological Effects of EMFs, 3rd International Workshop, Kos, Greece, 4-8 October, 2004, Page 363 ISBN:

22 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research22 The number of injured drivers in Sweden is increasing

23 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research23 Both handheld and hands-free phones increase the reaction time while driving

24 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research24 Work-load related injuries are increasing

25 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research25 And it takes longer time to recover from a work related sickness or accident in the high power counties! zRefer to Figure 3 in: Hallberg, Johansson. Does GSM 1800 MHz affect the public health in Sweden? Proceedings of Biological Effects of EMFs, 3rd International Workshop, Kos, Greece, 4-8 October, 2004, Page 363 ISBN:

26 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research26 It also takes longer time to recover from a surgery operation in sparsely populated regions

27 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research27 The mortality due to external causes is higher in the countryside

28 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research28 Nerve system mortality

29 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research29 The number of deaths per year in Alzheimer’s disease is accelerating!

30 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research30 And especially so in high power counties

31 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research31 This is not the case for a completely different neuralgic disease, ALS.

32 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research32 And ALS shows no trendbreak

33 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research33 Prostate cancer has been increasing in Stockholm since 1997 zRefer to Figure 5 in: Hallberg, Johansson. Does GSM 1800 MHz affect the public health in Sweden? Proceedings of Biological Effects of EMFs, 3rd International Workshop, Kos, Greece, 4-8 October, 2004, Page 364 ISBN:

34 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research34 And so it does for all of Sweden - especially after 1997

35 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research35 But it has nothing to do with mobile phone output power!

36 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research36 So, if we look at leukemia, is there any trend-break? No - not at all!

37 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research37 Does the incidence increase by mobile output power? No!

38 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research38 So, to summarize zWhich health characteristics do fit with GSM1800? zAnd which ones don’t?

39 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research39 Can the mobile system possibly be accountable for all these problems?

40 Copyright Hallberg Independent Research40 Conclusions zThe data shows that the health of the whole Swedish population is threatened zSparsely populated counties are worse off zThe responsible authorities must seriously consider possible health implications from the GSM 1800 MHz system
