Study shows cellphone use can link to Brain Cancer – WHO

• 01/06/2011


Another report has made its way available to anyone interested that suggests there is in fact a link between cellphone use and brain cancer, despite last years report saying there was no link. The International Agency for Research for Cancer, part of the World Health Organization (WHO), has released its findings from 31 scientists over 14 countries that reveals cellphone use can increase the chance of ‘glioma’ which is a malignant form of brain cancer. One of the people involved, Dr. Jonathan Samat, made the following statements;

the evidence, while still accumulating, is strong enough to support a conclusion and the 2B classification. The conclusion means that there could be some risk, and there for we need to keep a close watch for a link between cell phones and cancer.

The report made by WHO discussed here was swept away verbally by Donald Berry, a professor of biostatistics at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center at the University of Texas, who said the following;

Anything is a possible carcinogen… This is not something I worry about and it will not in any way change how I use my cellphone

What do you think? There’s still controversy over this subject, and we haven’t seen a long enough prolonged window of use to say either way whether its harmful or not. maybe after another 50 years, we’ll see some effect, positive or negative.
