2, 2009 - European
Parliament Resolution of 2 April 2009 on health concerns
associated with electromagnetic fields. The report was adopted
with 559 votes in favor, 22 against and 8 abstentions.
The placement of antennas, mobile phone masts and high-voltage
power lines should be negotiated between industry actors,
public authorities and residents' associations in order to
minimize health risks and legal action cases. This will also
ensure that EMF-transmitting devices are kept clear of schools,
crèches, retirement homes and health care institutions.
In addition to this, the House recommends that mobile telephone
operators should negotiate to share infrastructure in order
to reduce "the exposure of the public to EMFs."
Aggressive marketing campaigns by telephone operators, including
"the sale of mobile phones designed solely for children
or free call time packages aimed at teenagers" are also
condemned by MEPs.

German Federal Government (Bundesregierung) recommends, in
general, keeping the personal radiation exposure from high
frequency electromagnetic fields as low as possible, that
is to say, i.e. to prefer conventional wired connections,
if the use of wireless-supported solutions can be avoided.
