** Please note that there are strong barriers in place to preserve the study’s intellectual independence.
In a letter from the Canadian Wireless Telecommunication Association to the Canadian Institute of Health Research Committee, it specifies:

“In order to ensure that MOBI-KIDS is conducted independently of commercial interests of our organization, it is important that, other than providing technical information upon request, CWTA will not be directly involved with the conduct of the study. As was the case with INTERPHONE, CWTA will not be involved in any way in the design, conduct, analysis or interpretation of the MOBI-KIDS study, and will not see study results until they appear in the peer-reviewed scientific literature.  CWTA has restricted its role to that of an advisor on technical matters such as these, and a facilitator between the research team and cell phone carriers. In doing so, CWTA is able to contribute financially and technically to the resolution of risk issues relating to cellular phones and wireless technologies in young people, while remaining independent of the epidemiological research on the potential health risks of radiofrequency fields undertaken by the research team.”
