The truth about the risk of cancer that might come from using a mobile phone regularly is proving very elusive. Many different reports have appeared over the last few years, some of them claiming there is a definite link, others refuting those claims and saying that the use of a mobile phone does not lead to heightened cancer risk no matter how often you use it.

The difficulty is that data on a huge number of people are needed to establish whether there is a link or not, and the research needs to be done over several years. Cancer takes a long time to form, and may be diagnosed years after exposure to the environmental risk factors that cause it. Using a mobile phone could cause cancers that don’t appear for 15 or 20 years later – and mobile phones just haven’t been around that long yet.

New Mobile Phone Risk Study

As so many people do now use mobile phones, in the developing world as well as in the industrialised world, we have to find some sort of answer to this question. If mobile phones are linked with a higher risk of brain cancer, it may become necessary to change their design so that the risk is reduced. At the very least, people should be aware that they are taking such a risk.In late April 2010, a new study was launched that should provide all the answers – but the results will not be available for years yet. In total, the period that the study covers could extend over the next 30 years, although some interim results will become available before that.

The Scope of the Mobile Phone Risk Study

The new study will cost millions and is going to include around quarter of a million people in 5 different countries. About 100 000 of them will be from the UK and other people from Denmark, Sweden, Finland and the Netherlands will also be recruited. Each person in the study will give their permission for their mobile phone records to be taken and stored, and they will provide regular updates on their health, including symptoms such as headaches, and the number of cases of different cancer that arise will be recorded over time.

Cell Phone Towers Health Effects

While the United Kingdom’s Independent newspaper described Khurana’s study as “the most devastating indictment yet published of the health risks” of mobile phones, his warning is not the first. A Swedish study in 2006 concluded that people who used mobile phones for an hour or more each day had a 240 percent higher brain tumor risk than non-users. Tumors were significantly more likely to develop on the side of the head where the phone was most often used.

Inspired in part by such studies, France has warned against mobile phone use (especially in children), Germany urges people to minimize their use of mobile handsets, and the European Environment Agency has called for minimizing exposure to cellular radiation.

The mechanisms by which mobile phones increase cancer risk are not well understood, but several possibilities are suspected. Electromagnetic radiation (EMR) is known to directly heat up the head and brain, and can also cause thermoelectric effects on cells and DNA. According to Khurana, even bluetooth devices and unshielded headsets merely turn the head into an antenna that bombards itself with radiation. Children, with thinner skulls than adults, are particularly at risk.

“EMR rays in general cause irritation, concentration lapses and in many cases even proliferation of cells which cause cancer,” said Dr Rajeev Ranjan, a New Delhi neurologist. Radiation can also interfere with the functioning of medical devices like pacemakers.

EMR also “affect[s] the DNA and cause[s] problems in cell recovery and cell growth,” said New Delhi neurologist Anshu Rohatgi.

Khurana warned that if immediate measures are not taken, mobile phones will soon be responsible for a massive public health crisis.
“We are currently experiencing a reactively unchecked and dangerous situation,” he said.

Because mobile phone use began in the mid-1980s and it can take up to 20 years to diagnose a malignant solid brain tumor, he said, “In the years 2008-2012, we will have reached the appropriate length of follow-up time to begin to definitively observe the impact of this global technology on brain tumor incidence rates.”

“Malignant brain tumor incidence and its associated death rate will be observed globally to rise within a decade from now,” Khurana said, “by which time it may be far too late to meaningfully intervene.”
