 Heavy Mobile Use Raises Brain Tumour Risk: Study
Long-term mobile phone users are at an increased risk of developing cancer in later life, warns a decade-long study.

The survey of 12,800 people in 13 countries has reportedly found that heavy mobile use is linked to brain tumours.

The report, which will be published later this year, has been overseen by the World Health Organisation, reports The Daily Express.

The inquiry's preliminary results look at whether mobile phone exposure is linked to three types of brain tumour and a tumour of the salivary gland.

There is no doubt in my mind that cell phone radiation in dangerous and this report confirms it, but my biggest concern is that everybody keeps looking at cell phones but the biggest potential problem is DECT cordless phones. I suspect most people were not aware that they are transmitting pulsed microwave radiation 24/7 even if a call is not being made. This is because the original specification called for constant communication between the base stations and all the handsets. This failing has been addressed in some parts of Europe with the introduction of Low Radiation DECT phones. The only problem is that the industry is hiding its head under a stone and keeping it quiet.

The WHO and scientist need to come out in the open about the potential risks. The money involved is huge but equally so the health toll could be in epidemic proportions if this is right.
