Default Australian Health Research Institute story hoax

Quote:
ACCORDING TO studies and survey conducted by Australian Health Research Institute, due to billions of times increase in volume of electromagnetic radiation emitted by millions of mobile phones, internet, intranet and wireless communication data transmission will make almost 1/3 rd of world population susceptible to ear, eye and brain cancer, besides other major body disorders like heart ailments, impotency, migraine, epilepsy etc.

Can't find any Australian Health Research Institute so this story appears to be a hoax so watch out for this kind of thing. Could be an attempt to discredit the concerns about mobile phones. Days later...

Mobile phones no health risk, says German study

The programme was funded with 17 million euros (26 million dollars), a small sum compared with the billions of euros that the German government collected when it auctioned licenses for slices of Germany's UMTS airwave spectrum in 2000.
