The cabinet reviewed the results of a study conducted by the World Health Organisation (WHO) experts to verify the risks of electromagnetic emissions from telecommunications towers.

The experts concluded in their study that the manner in which telecommunications masts are managed in Bahrain complies with the international secure emission protocols, and that the existing masts have no impact on human health because their rate of radiation emission is very low, and is at safety levels.

The study found that the rates measured in Bahrain are even better than those in developed countries, a memorandum submitted by the Minister of Health on the WHO study also said.
