HTC rubbishes WHO cancer report
Taipei - Taiwan's leading smartphone maker HTC on Thursday labelled as "inconclusive" a World Health Organisation study that said mobile phone users may be at increased risk of brain cancer.
"While the current WHO research results are inconclusive, we continue to actively monitor for new research in this area," the company said in a statement.
"HTC is committed to providing a quality product and we follow governmental guidelines and regulations pertaining to phone safety."
The statement came after the WHO's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) announced on Tuesday that radio-frequency electromagnetic fields generated by wireless devices are "possibly carcinogenic to humans".
