Cancer doesn’t happen overnight.
It’s a slow, devious villain that propagates according to
the hospitable environments we provide for it.
One problem among many is that this malicious miscreant
often goes unnoticed until its size or biological blitz on
the body threatens the efficacy of even the most capable
Cancer effectively turns proliferation into an art — a most
vile one at that. And brain cancer is no exception.
Relatively new research is examining the link between
cellphone usage and brain cancer, but don’t hold your call
Many medical experts suggest it may be decades before our
modern-day cellphone habits catch up with us, making it
difficult to observe broad-based health effects in today’s
population. Perhaps this is one reason that the number of
brain cancer cases has remained relatively consistent.
Dr. Henry Lai, a research professor in bioengineering at the
University of Washington who has spent over 30 years
studying the effects of radiation, told CNN: “When you look
at cancer development — particularly brain cancer — it takes
a long time to develop.” Lai strongly supports issuing the
caveat to cellphone users that long-term exposure to the
emitted radiation could potentially lead to cancer.
One of the largest studies done on cellphone usage and its
possible correlation with brain tumors was the Interphone
case-control study with approximately 5,000 people being
interviewed, a study which found no short-term correlation
between cellphone usage and brain tumors.
However, one of the many issues with this study was that
participants averaged 2 to 2 1/2 hours of cellphone use each
month, according to in-person interviews — a number
significantly lower than the average daily time of 21
minutes that AT&T customers use their cellphones today,
which calculates to nearly 11 hours per month of usage.
Furthermore, despite finding no short-term correlation
between brain tumors and cellphone usage, the study did
observe an increased risk in ipsilateral tumors — tumors on
the same side of the head as typical cellphone use — in
participants who had used cellphones regularly for longer
than 10 years, though they ruled this finding inconclusive.
Interesting to note, however, is that this study was
predominantly funded by mobile phone companies.
A 2011 Swedish study conducted by researchers at the
University Hospital found that individuals who had been
using cellphones and cordless phones for more than 10 years
increased their risk of malignant brain tumors by
approximately 30 percent .
Moreover, individuals who started using cellphones as
teenagers and continued their usage for at least 10 years
increased their risk of developing an astrocytoma brain
tumor by nearly five times in comparison to the control
The World Health Organization has even recently added
cellphones to the list of possible carcinogens, joining
lead, DDT and chloroform, among others.
Despite these findings, don’t expect many American
regulatory agencies and associations to declare cellphones
dangerous any time soon, as they are often negligent and
tardy in enacting health and safety reforms.
In fact, many of our health organizations have maintained a
consistent history of questionable ethics, from receiving
hefty “donations” from corporations and endorsing some of
the most dangerous products to ignoring medical research
In 1904, lead-based paints were linked to lead poisoning in
children, and as a result, many European countries banned
lead-based interior paints in 1909.
Moreover, due to more reports surfacing about the health
detriments of lead-based paints, the League of Nations
effectively banned the paints in 1922. Despite the deadly
health effects and numerous medical publications on the
metal, only in 1971 did the United States follow suit with
the Lead-Based Paint Poisoning Prevention Act.
Corporations such as tobacco and pharmaceutical companies
don’t like to see any type of dip or depression in their
revenues, and with multibillion-dollar bank accounts, they
can influence even the most resistant.
In 1933, the Journal of American Medical Association — JAMA
— began publishing advertisements promoting cigarettes and
continued these promotions for 20 years. One of the more
renowned ad taglines from the medical journal was: “More
doctors smoke Camels than any other cigarette!”
Simply because the link between cellphone usage and brain
cancer has not been boldly declared by certain health groups
does not denote their innocuity, as many organizations will
only declare these announcements once lives have already
So, be proactive about your health today.
The farther away your cellphone is from your body, the
better, as less radiation is absorbed.
From now on, talk on speakerphone when you can, away from
Don’t sleep with your cellphone by your head, and keep your
device in your bag, not your pockets.
When it comes to your health and well-being, it’s always
better to be safe than sorry.
