Today the World Health Organization confirmed what many
scientists have been hinting about for more than a decade:
Cell phones may increase your risk of brain cancer.
Indeed, in a complete reversal of their previous point of
view that no evidence exists linking cell phone use to
cancer, today a group of 31 WHO scientists from 14 countries
meeting at the World Health Organizations International
Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) concluded that brain
cancer might well be a risk associated with cell phone use.
The specialists reported coming to this conclusion after
reviewing scientific literature published on the topic
between the mid 1990’s and 2004.
As a result of the finding, WHO has now classified cell
phones as a Category 2B carcinogenic risk – meaning that its
effects may be similar to those of pesticides like DDT and
air pollution from car exhausts.
Although the scientific panel fell short of saying cell
phones positively cause cancer, they came the closest thus
far of any official group in labeling cell phone use as "
possibly carcinogenic to human beings."
More specifically the group said research appears to support
an increased risk of malignant brain tumors known as gliomas.
"A review of the human evidence of epidemiological studies
shows an increased risk of glioma and malignant types of
brain cancer in association with wireless phone use," Dr.
Jonathan Samet, the chairperson of the IARC group told
reporters in a press conference held earlier today.
