WHO Study Shows Cell Phone Radiation, Brain Tumor Link

Lady with cell phoneA ten-year study into cell phones conducted by the World Health Organization (WHO) has found a link between long term use and brain tumors. The internationally-respected body will release the official results of their study before the end of the year, but will soon begin issuing a public health message with its findings, according to the New York Post.

The $30 million decade-long project surveyed 12,800 people in 13 countries, and included tumor sufferers as well as healthy cell phone users. No specific results of the study have been released, but preliminary results have linked mobile phone exposure to three types of brain tumour and a tumour of the salivary gland.

This finding comes on the heels of similar reports recently by the International EMF Collaborative and the Environmental Working Group (EWG) as well as a Senate hearing chaired by Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, looking into the health risks of cell phone use.

The head of the WHO study, Dr. Elisabeth Cardis, said, “In the absence of definitive results and in the light of a number of studies which, though limited, suggest a possible effect of radiofrequency radiation, precautions are important.” She further stated that children should be restricted, not banned, from cell phone use.

    There are numerous studies that show the cell phone radiation and cancer link is inconclusive. There has to more thorough investigation before responsible organizations issue public declarations like this. Just my 2 cents.

    The World Health Organization has declared that cell phone radiation may be linked to brain cancer. Ten studies connect cell phone radiation to diminished sperm count and sperm damage. Others raise health concerns such as altered brain metabolism, sleep disturbance and behavioral changes in children. Then I researched ways to avoid the danger from cell phone radiation . I found cases from Pong Research, I read that this technology reduces exposure to radiation while optimizing the mobile reception. I was skeptical about it, anyway, I decided to try it, because Pong is the only technology proven in FCC-certified laboratories to reduce the exposure to mobile device radiation by up to 95% below the FCC limit without compromising the device’s ability to communicate.
