Cell Phones And Brain Cancer Risk

Research indicates children and teenagers are five times more likely to get brain cancer if they use mobile phones. At least nine out of ten 16-year-olds have their own handset, as do more than 40 percent of primary schoolchildren.

Many scientists have claimed that the wave of mobile communications made popular in the last two decades will result in long-term health implications worldwide. An unprecedented level and frequency of tumor growth inside the human brain may be inevitable.

Studies on Cell Phone Use And Radiation Exposure
Dr. Leif Salford at Lund University Hospital in Sweden conducted studies wherein more than 1,600 animals were exposed to low levels of radiation, similar with what a person would be subjected to with routine cell phone use. His results showed that such radiation exposure causes leakage a lining of the brain called the “blood-brain barrier”, the first line of protection against infection and toxins. Dr. Salford referred to the implications of his work, “terrifying” and concluded that even “very low levels” of radio wave radiation causes cerebral damage over time.

Additional Research in Sweden, headed by Lennart Hardell of The University Hospital in Orebro, Sweden, reported that individuals who start using cell phones regularly before age 20 have more than five-times the risk of developing glioma, a form of cancer that attacks the central nervous system. The additional risk to young people of developing the disease from cell phone use is about four times higher than normal.

Other Organizations are also studying the relationship between mobile phone use and varying types of cancer and tumorous growths. The Mayo Clinic has said that steady cell phone use puts users at risk of acoustic neuroma (tumors in certain nerve bundles in the head).
