Researchers from the University of Manchester analyzed the number of brain cancer cases during the period between 1998 and 2007 and found that such cancers increased by a very small percentage during the study period.

The researchers said that the study period was chosen since it was just a few years after the cell phone boom in Britain that saw them number of cell phone users shoot up from 0 to 65 percent in the early years of the 1990s.

"Our findings indicate that a causal link between mobile phone use and cancer is unlikely because there is no evidence of any significant increase in the disease since their introduction and rapid proliferation", lead researcher Dr Frank de Vocht said.

All this tells us is that statistically no link with brain tumours can be found. There are many more illnesses caused by microwave communications. Insomnia, lack of concentration, feelings of pressure in the head, other sensory distubances, anxiety and depression. The effect of this over time on the individual and society should not be underestimated. Mobile companies and the government are making vast amounts of money from us and have never put anything into worthwhile research. Occasionally they chuck a bit of money at something like this to disprove something which was not provable in the first place just to keep us reassured while doctors dish out anti-depressants to stop us worrying about why our lives are so intollerable. I have not slept properly for 10 years now due a very low frequency noise. I have just discovered this noise is emmitted from the mobile mast antenna. 10 years without a decent nights sleep can really mess you up. MS, CFS, ADHD, EHS all caused by mobile comms.
