Cell Phones Cause Brain Tumors

Hands Free Humor Cellphone 300x225 Cell Phones Cause Brain TumorsThis has been a long running debate:  Do cellphones actually cause or increase the risk of brain tumors?  Well according to a new study the answer is yes.  The report done by EM Radiation Research Trust that actually began in 1999 reveals what the authors call a “systemic-skew” to greatly underestimate the risk caused by radiation from cell phones.

The report concludes:

  • There is a risk of brain tumors from cell phone use
  • Industry funded studies tend to underestimate the risk
  • Children are more at risk than adults

The study lists what it calls, “15 Reasons for Concern”:

  1. Industry’s own research showed cellphones caused brain tumors
  2. Subsequent industry-funded research also showed that using a cellphone elevated
    the risk of brain tumors (2000-2002)
  3. Interphone studies, published to date, consistently show use of a cellphone for
    less than 10 years protects the user from a brain tumor
  4. Independent research shows there is risk of brain tumors from cellphone use
  5. Despite the systemic-protective-skewing of all results in the Interphone studies,
    significant risk for brain tumors from cellphone use was still found
  6. Studies independent of industry funding show what would be expected if wireless
    phones cause brain tumors
  7. The danger of brain tumors from cellphone use is highest in children, and the
    younger a child is when he/she starts using a cellphone, the higher the risk
  8. There have been numerous governmental warnings about children’s use of
    cellphones
  9. Exposure limits for cellphones are based only on the danger from heating
  10. An overwhelming majority of the European Parliament has voted for a set of
    changes based on “health concerns associated with electromagnetic fields.”
  11. Cellphone radiation damages DNA, an undisputed cause of cancer
  12. Cellphone radiation has been shown to cause the blood-brain barrier to leak
  13. Cellphone user manuals warn customers to keep the cellphone away from
    the body even when the cellphone is not in use
  14. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) warning for cordless phones
  15. Male fertility is damaged by cellphone radiation
