Good GSMtransmitter coverage leads to low handset output power that can vary from 2 W down to 0.001 W. In less populated regions areas with weak GSM coverage the handset output power is higher which could have an impact on the health.

Conclusion (acc. to author)
A strong correlation between healthdegradation and weak GSM coverage was found. Decreased mortality due to circulation problems was observed with increasing levels of GSM coverage. The health status in parts of Sweden with a 100 % coverage has degraded by around 11 sick days since 1997, start of GSM.
