New Proof: Cellphone do not Cause Cancer

Contrary to the claims of the World Health Organization (WHO) some time ago, a number of independent panel of scientists actually found new evidence indicating that the phone actually does not cause cancer.

"Despite lingering doubts, some new evidence that was collected just refuted the hypothesis that mobile phone use can cause brain tumors among adults," they wrote in Environmental Health Perspectives quoted Total Telecom, Tuesday (07/05/2011).

The conclusion that following the publication of the analysis the International Agency for Cancer Research that examines the effects of the 13-nation Interphone.

"The results of the Interphone studies and epidemiological studies, biological and other animal studies, as well as cases of brain tumors revealed that the use of mobile phones in the first 10 to 15 years are not directly associated with an increased risk of brain tumors in adults," said Anthony Swerdlow of the Institute of Cancer Research UK.

Nevertheless, Swerdlow warned that "the possibility of short-and long-term effects can not be eliminated just like that". According to Swerdlow, further studies on cancer risk level for the next few years will determine whether the phone has become one of the causes of brain tumors.

"If there were no apparent effect until several years into the future, even though the phone has entered almost all Western countries, it became clear that there is no causal link between mobile phones with brain tumors," he said.

"Conversely, if there is a trend (increase in tumor disease) which can not be explained, the public must get answers to this," said Swerdlow.
