Israeli Study Shows First Proof of Cell Phone Related CancerTel Aviv researchers have proven for the first time the link between cell phone use and cancer.

Yaniv Hamzany of Tel Aviv University led the study, which offers the first conclusive proof that prolonged cell phone exposure could increase the risk of developing cancer.

“Increasing use of mobile phones creates growing concerns regarding harmful effects of radio frequency nonionizing electromagnetic radiation on human tissues located close to the ear, where phones are commonly held for long periods of time,” the study said.

The study was conducted by analyzing the saliva of 20 subjects, who each reported using a cell phone an average of eight hours a month, a low figure according to Dr. Hamzany.

This was compared to a control group of deaf patients who do not place a cell phone to their ear at all.

The cell phone users had a significant increase in salivary oxidative stress measurements, which is linked to cellular and genetic mutations that can cause the development of tumors.

"This suggests that there is considerable oxidative stress on the tissue and glands which are close to the cell phone when in use," Dr. Hamzany said.

The findings were reported in the journal Antioxidants and Redox Signaling.

Open letter by UK medical doctors: Health and safety of Wi-Fi and mobile phones

We wish to highlight our concern over the safety of exposure to microwave radiation from wireless technology, particularly for vulnerable groups like children, pregnant women, the elderly and those with compromised health.

There is growing concern that chronic (long-term) exposure to radiofrequency/microwave radiation from wireless technologies causes damage, particularly genetic damage, cognitive damage, cancer and decreased fertility. There is now substantial evidence of a link between mobile phone use and brain cancer. This was recognised by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC)’s 30-strong panel of scientists, which in 2011 classed radiofrequency radiation as “possibly carcinogenic”.

Additionally, doctors are encountering a significant and growing number of people presenting with a range of acute (short-term) symptoms from wireless radiation, including headaches, palpitations, rashes, fatigue, sleep disturbance, allergies and memory and concentration problems.

International medical agencies have recognised the evidence of harm (see appended list) but these rulings may take many years to be reflected in public health policy. This controversy is a common characteristic of scientific understanding when environmental exposures are new.

We urge health agencies and the public to act immediately to reduce exposure to radiofrequency/microwave radiation. This is especially important for children, who are physiologically more vulnerable to this exposure and for whom adults have a safeguarding responsibility.

Children’s health should be put ahead of convenience and commercial benefits. Children should not use mobile phones except in an emergency, and WiFi should be replaced with wired alternatives in schools and other settings where children spend considerable time.

Cell phones can cause tumors, according to a Landmark Court Ruling.  

Italian businessman Innocente Marcolini, 60, fell ill after using a handset at work for up to six hours a day for 12 years.  Now Italy's Supreme Court in Rome has blamed his phone. Experts have predicted a flood of legal actions from victims

British Child Cell Phone Ownership

Children in the UK are almost twice as likely to own a mobile phone at the age of 10 compared to those in other countries, according to a new international study.  Three-quarters (73 per cent) of 10-year-olds here have a personal mobile compared to a global average of only 45 per cent.

Cell phones bad for children

A new theory about how radiation from mobile phones might induce brain cancer will be presented for the first time today (Wednesday 25th April) at the Childhood Cancer 2012 conference in London.

A landmark report by the World Health Organization’s cancer agency last year concluded that there is a possible link between mobile phone use and brain cancer, but how that might happen has remained unclear (1). Explaining the mechanism of how mobile phone radiation might cause cancer is vital for avoiding and ultimately preventing the disease.
