Cell Phone Towers Health Effects
The National Cancer Institute seems to acknowledge this
possibility when it says on its website that “more research
is needed to determine what effects, if any, low-level
non-ionizing RF [radio frequency] energy has on the body and
whether it poses a health danger.”
Similarly, the World Health Organization says that “there
are gaps in knowledge that have been identified for further
research to better assess health risks.” Many nations that
participated in the Interphone study have released
individual reports with their own findings.
One conclusion consistent with nearly every report is that
there is indeed a higher risk of brain tumors for people who
use a cellphone for at least 10 years and who typically hold
the device on the same side of their head.
For Morgan, that finding alone is sufficient to raise a red
“That means cellphones are causing brain tumors,” he said.
“End of story.”
Critics of that conclusion say more time is needed to see if
this is indeed the case or some odd statistical quirk. They
also say the national reports still must be correlated to
determine whether the findings hold up on a global basis.
Morgan challenges the validity of many of the Interphone
study’s reported findings. The one he’s wariest of is an
indication that in some cases radiation from cellphones may
actually protect users from brain tumors.
“There are only two possibilities,” Morgan said. “One is
that it’s true. The other is that the study is deeply
Most independent researchers, he said, find it ridiculous to
think that holding a radiation-emitting device to the side
of your head can ward off brain cancer.
“And if it’s true,” Morgan added, “why doesn’t the cellphone
industry promote that finding?” At this point, the one thing
we know for sure about the potential danger of cellphones is
that no one knows for sure about the potential danger of
Morgan told me he doesn’t think the world’s 4 billion
cellphones will be banned any time soon — they’re too
convenient. But he thinks speakers should be removed from
handsets, requiring people to listen through earplugs and
thus keep the phone away from their head.
Morgan also would borrow from cigarette packs and include a
warning on all cellphones that long-term use can be
hazardous to your health. “Not everyone who smokes three
packs a day gets lung cancer,” he said. “Not everyone who
uses a cellphone will get brain cancer. But everyone who
does is at higher risk.”It’s a compelling argument. And so
far, no one can say with certainty that he’s wrong.
