Weird science. From 3G Mobile Signals Can Cause Nausea, Headache:

The study, the first of its kind, compared the impact of radiation from base stations used for the current mobile telephone network with that of base stations for new third generation (3G) networks for fast data transfer, which will enable services such as video conferencing on a mobile device.
“If the test group was exposed to third generation base station signals there was a significant impact … They felt tingling sensations, got headaches and felt nauseous,” a spokeswoman for the Dutch Economics Ministry said.

There was no negative impact from signals for current mobile networks.

However, cognitive functions such as memory and response times were boosted by both 3G signals and the current signals, the study found. It said people became more alert when they were exposed to both.
