The Hidden Dangers of Mobile Phones

There are currently almost seven billion mobile phones in use worldwide. And the modern smartphones are multi-functional devices, which some people rarely put down. Is the radiation emanating from these devices not perhaps far more dangerous than the manufacturers and distributors would have us believe? What does this radiation do to people? Scientists are divided on the health risks posed by cellphone radiation. Thousands of studies have come to very different conclusions.

The documentary goes into this question, describes the current state of research, and presents the results of investigations conducted in Germany, France and Sweden.
