Project:
COSMOS; cohort study of mobile phone use and health
01-02-2009 tot 01-01-2020
Algemene projectbeschrijving 

In the last few years the use of new communication technologies, like mobile phones and wireless internet, has rapidly increased. As these devices make use of Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields (RF-EMF), human exposure to RF has also increased. There is extensive public and scientific interest in the possibility that RF exposure might increase the risk of disease, as this has yet to be determined.


This international cohort study on mobile phone use and health (COSMOS) is a long term project to investigate possible health effects associated with long term mobile phone use. COSMOS is an international consortium of five European countries (UK, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, and the Netherlands) which together will characterize the mobile phone use (through operator traffic records and a self-reported questionnaire) and follow the health of at least 200,000 mobile phone users (over 18 years of age) for 20 to 30 years. Health outcomes to be studied include risk of cancers, benign tumors, neurological and cerebro-vascular diseases, as well as changes in occurrence of specific symptoms over time, such as headache and sleep disorders.


Each of the participating countries launched their own prospective cohort study on mobile phone and EMF related health risks. The COSMOS consortium is there to ensure that all these participating studies use similar protocols to enable pooling of data in the future. Combining data is necessary to address the possible associations between RF exposure and relatively rare diseases such as cancer of the brain.

Project:
CLEAR; Climate change, environmental contaminants and reproductive health 01-04-2010 tot 01-04-2014
Algemene projectbeschrijving

This research project investigates the possible impact of global climate change on reproductive health in Arctic and three local European populations. The key questions to be addressed are, first, how may climate change impact on human exposure to widespread environmental contaminants and, second, how may contaminants impact on occurrence of reproductive disorders as sensitive indicators of health.


To provide affirmative answers to these questions the project will


(i) identify and describe mechanisms by which a changing climate may affect the exposure of arctic and other human populations to contaminants through change in chemical use and emissions, delivery to the arctic ecosystem as well as processing within the arctic physical environment and human food chain. This work relies on modeling of existing data.


(ii) expand the existing knowledge database on human exposure to polybrominated diphenylethers, perfluorinated surfactants and phthalates by analyses of 1000 biobanked serum samples collected in the EU FP5 programme INUENDO


(iii) increase the limited knowledge on links between human exposure to contaminants and reproductive health. This work relies on a large existing parent-child-cohort, where a follow-up survey provide new data that are fed into risk assessment


(iv) perform reviews of experimental and epidemiological literature to identify critical reproductive effects and exposure response data for the selected compounds as input to the risk assesment


(v) integrate data on relative climate induced changes in contaminant mobility and distribution and links between contaminant exposure and reproductive health into a risk evaluation providing insight into possible future risk scenarios related to global climate change.
