Sceptical Danes mistrust radiation information
One-third of the Danish public worries about non-ionising radiation from mobile telephones and base stations, and nearly half feels ill informed on the subject, according to surveys carried out for Denmark's government-funded body the Information centre for environment and health. More than 70% of the interviewees did not trust information on radiation supplied by the telecoms sector. Health and consumer organisations fared much better, with 60%-71% of interviewees expressing faith in their claims, while experts were trusted by about half the sample. See press release.
