Despite a recent move to classify mobile phones as possibly
carcinogenic, the scientific evidence increasingly points
away from a link between their use and brain tumors,
according to a new study on Saturday.
A major review of previously published research by a
committee of experts from Britain, the United States and
Sweden concluded there was no convincing evidence of any
It also found a lack of established biological mechanisms by
which radio signals from mobile phones might trigger tumors.
"Although there remains some uncertainty, the trend in the
accumulating evidence is increasingly against the hypothesis
that mobile phone use can cause brain tumors in adults," the
experts wrote in the journal Environmental Health
The latest paper comes just two months after the World
Health Organisation's (WHO) International Agency for
Research on Cancer (IARC) decided cellphone use should be
classified as "possibly carcinogenic to humans."
Anthony Swerdlow of Britain's Institute of Cancer Research,
who led the new review, told Reuters the two positions were
not necessarily contradictory, since the IARC needed to put
mobile phones into a pre-defined risk category.
"We are trying to say in plain English what we believe the
relationship is. They (IARC) were trying to classify the
risk according to a pre-set classification system," Swerdlow
Other things deemed by the IARC to be possibly carcinogenic
include items as diverse as lead, pickled vegetables and
Mobile phone use has risen hugely since the early 1980s,
with nearly 5 billion handsets in use today, and controversy
about their potential link to the main types of brain tumor,
glioma and meningioma, has never been far away.
