Despite what the telecom industry may want us to believe, if we do the research, we find there is now an overwhelming abundance of independent, peer-reviewed studies telling us that cell phone radiation is dangerous for our health. The research links cell phone radiation with many different disorders and diseases.
Cell Phones & Cancer
Researchers of the 2012 Bioinitiative Report agree that approximately ten years of cell phone use may lead to tumors. In particular, there are significant studies that directly correlate RF radiation from cell phones with brain tumors.
Studies report that:
- The chance of developing a brain tumor goes up as much as 40% after a decade of cell phone use.
- People are 5 times more likely to develop a brain tumor if they began using a cell phone before the age of 20.
- People have twice the risk of developing the cancer known as “Glioma”, if they use their cell phones for half an hour a day for more than a decade.
- People using cell phones for 2000 hours have 240% greater risk for malignant brain tumors.
A significant report was released in 2009 by the International EMF Collaborative, a team of international EMF scientists and activists, entitled “Cell Phones and Brain Tumors: 15 Reasons for Concern, Science, Spin and the Truth Behind Interphone”.
Another study by an Israeli research group found that there’s recently been a sharp 4-fold increase in malignant tumors of the parotid gland on the side of the face the cell phone users generally hold the phone. Parotid tumors have historically been very rare and have shown up in people after the age of 50. Most cases since 2001 have occurred in people under the age of 20.
