Mobile Phone Cancer Link Looking Less And Less Likely

category international | sci-tech | other press author Sunday July 03, 2011 20:22author by Wringer Report this post to the editors

Get the full story at the url. Maybe mobiles are safe after all.

Evidence from a growing number of studies does not support the theory that cellphones raise the risk of brain cancer, an independent international panel of experts has found after carrying out a thorough analysis of all published research.

The analysis was carried out by the ICNIRP (International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection) Standing Committee on Epidemiology.

Their findings and conclusions can be found in the latest issue of Environmental Health Perspectives.

Professor Anthony Swerdlow, from The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR), and team concluded:

"Although there remains some uncertainty, the trend in the accumulating evidence is increasingly against the hypothesis that mobile phone use can cause brain tumours in adults."

This latest study follows another one coordinated by the IARC (International Agency for Cancer Research), the 13-country Interphone Study.

Professor Swerdlow and team evaluated the Interphone Study carefully and described it as impressively large and comprehensive, but with several methodological flaws. They found no compelling evidence of a link between mobile phones and the location of tumors relative to their use.

According to national statistics and studies from several countries, the authors stress, there is no evidence of an increase in brain tumor rates up to 20 years after mobile phones were first used, and 10 years after they became commonly used.
