Cell phones work by sending signals to (and receiving them from) nearby cell towers (base stations) using rf waves for example, several studies published by the same research group in sweden have reported an increased risk of tumors on the side of the head where the cell phone was held, particularly with 10 or. Why is there concern that cell phones may cause cancer or other health problems what is radiofrequency energy and how does it affect the body how is radiofrequency energy exposure measured in epidemiologic studies what has research shown about the possible cancer-causing effects of. 12see us general accounting office, 95-32, report on the status of research on the safety of cellular telephones 3-5 (nov 1994) [hereinafter, gao report], ( reporting that available studies were inconclusive to determine whether handheld cellular telephones pose public health risks, and recommending that industry. A study finds that high-dose exposure to cell phone radiation increased brain tumors in male rats researchers note that more work is needed to interpret the results, which some called puzzling most studies in humans have failed to find a link between cell phone use and greater cancer risk (cnn) the. Read the weekend live broadcast transcript about a weizmann institute study that investigated cell phone radiation and its effects on brain cells and cancer. So with frustratingly scant data on the link between cellphones and cancer, health organizations have to carefully word their positions: phones might cause cancer because evidence either proving or disproving a link just isn't there the un's international agency for research on cancer, for instance, has.
Also, the research findings on the changes at the molecular level associated with the development of cancer are inconsistent and contradictory epidemiological studies in general populations, such as communities, concentrate on a possible causal relationship between mobile phone use and the occurrence of brain. The report is an in-depth peer reviewed study conducted by the us government and represents a significant development in long-running controversy over how many previous studies have suggested a link between cancer and mobile phone use but have been criticised for methodology or having small. While an increased risk of brain tumours from the use of mobile phones is not established, the increasing use of mobile phones and the lack of data for mobile phone use over time periods longer than 15 years warrant further research of mobile phone use and brain cancer risk in particular, with the recent popularity of. Previous research studies show no evidence of the impacts of mobile phones to human health new studies suggest that mobile radiation might double the risk of developing cancer on the side of the head in april 2000, an independent expert group in uk has issued a report on mobile phone effects on.
Solutions to mitigate impact of cell phones and mobile devices on human health and life 18 the main key points discussed in the research paper are the effect of electromagnetic waves on human brains effect of exposure emitted from the cell phones exists to cause cancer, and therefore, additional observations. Invasive multiple primary tumors in 34 year old, avid runner chinese-american woman who used cell phone 4 hours a day in her bra for 10 years —reported by robert nagourney, md, phd caveat - first case report, 2009. In 2011, the world health organization's international agency for research on cancer published a review stating that cell-phone radiation is “possibly carcinogenic” and earlier this year, an italian court ruled in favor of a plaintiff who argued that his brain tumor was the result of excessive work-related.
However, cell phones radiation causes different effects studies have shown that the non-ionizing radiation that is given off by cell phones causes dna chaos that can result in brain tumors and brain tissue damage research proves that cancer, tumors and tissue damage are all results from the radiation given off by cellular. I feel less than confident about the complete and truthful results on the ntp research ever becoming publicly available give the long time-delay between the completion of the ntp study, and its projected publication, the priorities of the current administration, and the clout of the cell phone industry, i think.
Lennart hardell (born 1944), is a swedish oncologist and professor at örebro university hospital in örebro, sweden he is known for his research into what he says are environmental cancer-causing agents, such as agent orange, and has said that cell phones increase the risk of brain tumors. The us national toxicology program (ntp) is expected to issue a public announcement that cell phone radiation presents a cancer risk for humans the safety of cell phones has been debated for more than 20 years, especially after the international agency for research on cancer (iarc) classified rf.
