PARIS (AFP) – Mobile phone users may be at increased risk from brain cancer and should use texting and free-hands devices to reduce exposure, the World Health Organisation’s cancer experts said Tuesday.
Radio-frequency electromagnetic fields generated by such devices are “”possibly carcinogenic to humans,”” the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) announced at the end of an eight-day meeting in Lyon, France.

Experts “”reached this classification based on review of the human evidence coming from epidemiological studies”” pointing to an increased incidence of glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer, said Jonathan Samet, president of the work group.
Two studies in particular, the largest conducted over the last decade, showed a higher risk “”in those that had the most intensive use of such phones,”” he said in a telephone news conference.
Some individuals tracked in the studies had used their phones for an average of 30 minutes per day over a period of 10 years.
“”We simply don’t know what might happen as people use their phones over longer time periods, possibly over a lifetime,”” Samet said.
There are about five billion mobile phones registered in the world. The number of phones and the average time spent using them have both climbed steadily in recent years.

The IARC cautioned that current scientific evidence showed only a possible link, not a proven one, between wireless devices and cancers.
“”There is some evidence of increased risk of glioma”” and another form of non-malignant tumour called acoustic neuroma, said Kurt Straif, the scientist in charge of editing the IARC reports on potentially carcinogenic agents.
“”But it is not at the moment clearly established that the use of mobile phones does in fact cause cancer in humans,”” he said.
The IARC does not issue formal recommendations, but experts pointed to a number of ways consumers can reduce risk.
“”What probably entails some of the highest exposure is using your mobile for voice calls,”” Straif said.
“”If you use it for texting, or as a hands-free set for voice calls, this is clearly lowering the exposure by at least an order of magnitude,”” or by tenfold, he said.
A year ago the IARC concluded that there was no link between cell phones and brain cancer, but that earlier report was criticised as based on data that was out of date.

The new review, conducted by a panel of 31 scientists from 14 countries, was reached on the basis of a “”full consensus,”” said Robert Baan, in charge of the written report, yet to be released.
“”This is the first scientific evaluation of all the literature published on the topic with regard to increased risk of cancer,”” he said.
But the panel stressed the need for more research, pointing to incomplete data, evolving technology and changing consumer habits.
“”There’s an improvement in the technology in terms of lower emissions but at the same time we see increased use, so it is hard to know how the two balance out,”” Baan noted.
The IARC ranks potentially cancer-causing elements as carcinogenic, probably carcinogenic, possibly carcinogenic or “”probably not carcinogenic””. It can also determine that a material is “”not classifiable””.
Cigarettes, sunbeds and asbestos, for example, fall in “”Group 1″”, the top threat category.
Cell phones now join glass wool and gasoline exhaust in Group 2B as “”possibly carcinogenic””.
Industry groups reacted cautiously, pointing to other common consumer items — including coffee and vegetables pickled in chemicals — that are included in the same category.
“”In France, the health ministry already applies a precautionary approach to cell phones because it considers that no danger has been established, that doubts remain and, thus, that more research is needed,”” the French Federation of Telecoms said in a statement.
Some consumer advocacy groups said the new classification was overdue.

“”As of today, no one can say the risk does not exist, and now everyone — politicians, telecoms, employers, consumers and parents — have to take this into account,”” said Janine Le Calvez, head of PRIARTEM, a consumer advocacy group concerned with cell phone safety.

Fresh Fears Over Mobile Phones

A major study into the safety of mobile phones has concluded that they may affect the health of people who use them.
Research carried out by scientists in Finland suggests radiation from mobile phones causes changes in the brain.
It is the first time that scientists have looked at the effects of mobile phone radiation on human cells rather than those of rats.
The two-year study concluded that even low-level emissions from handsets are damaging.

Scientists from the Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority found that exposing human cells to mobile phone radiation damaged the blood-brain barrier – a safety barrier in the body that stops harmful substances in blood from entering the brain.
They discovered that the exposure caused the cells in blood vessel walls to shrink which enabled molecules to pass into brain tissue.
Lab tests
Professor Darius Leszcynski, who carried out the study, said the results came from laboratory tests on human cells and that further research was needed to see if the same effect actually happened in humans.

But speaking to BBC News Online, he said: “The blood-brain barrier has been shown to be affected by radiation in animal studies.
“There is a lot of uncertainty about whether this happens in humans. We have shown some biological effects.”
Prof Leszcynski said these changes could have a serious impact on a person’s health if they were found to happen in humans.
“If it did happen it could lead to disturbances, such as headaches, feeling tired or problems with sleeping. A study by a Swedish research group even suggested it could lead to Alzheimer’s disease.”
However, he added: “It is important to remember that our study has been done in the laboratory where we can detect even the smallest changes.

“We cannot say whether it happens in humans. We need further study looking at real people to see if the blood-brain barrier is affected.
“What is happening in the human brain is an absolute enigma. We don’t know at all.”
‘Still safe’
Prof Leszcynski said mobile phones were still safe to use.
“At the moment, there is no scientific support for introducing any sort of limitation either on use of mobile phones or setting new safety limits.

“There is no need because we don’t have any science to support it. All the guidelines in place at the moment are fine.”
Prof Leszcynski will present his findings at a conference in Quebec, Canada, next week.
He said a study by French scientists, which will also be presented at the conference, found similar results in rats.
Dr Michael Clark, science spokesman at the National Radiological Protection Board, said the research did not show any impact on people’s health.

“This is demonstrating a biological effect in cells in the lab.”
Speaking to the BBC, he said: “It doesn’t relate to a health effect. You can’t go from a biological effect in a Petri dish to say that’s a health effect.”
He added: “The authors themselves are saying that this doesn’t mean that mobile phones are unsafe or the guidelines are wrong.”
The Consumers’ Association said there was still insufficient evidence to say whether or not mobile phones were safe.
A spokesman said: “At the moment, it’s too soon to reach a definitive verdict on health risks from mobile phones, but neither has research given it the all clear.”

The National Consumers’ Council said mobile phone users were reaching their own conclusions about the risks.
“The people who feel that mobile phones are very important and essential in their lives would attach less weight to this new information than those who are already concerned about the risk,” said a spokeswoman.
More than 40 million people in Britain have mobile phones, many of them children.

Government studies
Two years ago a government inquiry led by Sir William Stewart concluded that mobile phones posed no provable health risk.
But its report urged caution over the use of mobile phones by children until more was known about their impact on health.
In January, a new £7.4 million research programme was announced, backed by the government and the mobile phone industry, to be managed by an international committee of experts led by Sir William.
The programme includes 15 studies which will seek clear conclusions about the health hazards of mobile phones, in particular fears of an association between mobile phone radiation and brain cancer.
The main purpose of the research will be to see whether “subtle biological changes” already known to be caused by mobile phones pose a risk.

(NaturalNews) The results of the decade-long Interphone study on cell phone safety are that heavy cell phone use increases the risk of developing brain tumors later in life. The study, which focused on three types of brain cancer and tumors of the parotid gland, found a significant increase in cancer after a decade or more of cell phone use. When a cell phone tower connects with a cell phone, electromagnetic radiation is created. When the cell phone is held against the ear, this radiation penetrates the brain, particularly in children. According to the Daily Telegraph in London, the World Health Organization (WHO) will soon publish the results of the Interphone study, which was conducted in 12 countries by the International Agency for Cancer Research (IARC).

Head researcher Dr. Elisabeth Cardis told the Telegraph, “In the absence of definitive results and in the light of a number of studies which, though limited, suggest a possible effect of radio frequency radiation, precautions are important. I am therefore globally in agreement with the idea of restricting the use by children, though I would not go as far as banning mobile phones as they can be a very important tool, not only in emergencies, but also maintaining contact between children and their parents and thus playing a reassurance role. Means to reduce our exposure (use of hands-free kits and moderating our use of phones) are also interesting.”

These results from the Interphone study follow closely on research published in the Oct 13 issue of the Journal of Clinical Oncology, which reviewed existing research on the association between cell phones and brain tumors. It found that when just the well-done studies were included, there was an 18% increased risk of brain tumors in cell phone users, and that they tended to occur on the side of the head that the cell phone was used most.

In the United States, which did not participate in the Interphone study, there are 270 million cell phones in use. Senator Tom Harkin, now head of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, has promised to probe more deeply into the question of a link between cell phones and brain cancer. There’s no argument that cell phones emit an electromagnetic field, a form of microwave radiation, that enters the brain when the cell phone is held against the ear, and there’s good research showing that the field does affect brain function.

Although research has not shown that short term cell phone use causes cancer, a large population study from Sweden has shown that people who use cell phones for more than ten years on the same side of the head have a 40% higher risk of certain types of brain tumors. The Interphone study adds to this evidence. Cell phone users can distance the brain from electromagnetic fields by using the speaker phone function, a headset, or by texting.

Can you imagine leaving home without your cell phone? Apparently not many people can these days. With the cell phone’s debut in 1984, 92,000 early adapters raced to own one. Twenty years later, it is now estimated that more than 171 million Americans use a cell phone. Worldwide, a staggering 1.5 billion cell phones are constantly sending their invisible frequencies through the airwaves.

The Wireless Age is unrelentingly upon us. In just 20 years, the wireless industry has profoundly transformed the lives of people, businesses and societies globally. It has also evolved into a lucrative 200 billion dollar a year industry.

Around the world, people are embracing all things wireless. No doubt, this technology offers a world of new possibilities. But there are also dangers lurking. Is there something that you need to know about the wireless world that you haven’t been told?

The answer could very well be your health and the health of your children. The Invisible Health Hazards Michael discovered first hand the dark side of wireless technology. In his late twenties, Michael was a successful marketing executive living in the fast lane. For years his cell phone was his indispensable companion as he wheeled and dealed, racing through thousands of cell phone minutes each month. Only when his headaches became unbearable, did he seek medical attention. His shocking diagnosis changed his life; brain cancer was discovered. It was located on the same side of his head and in the same location where he held his cell phone. Three years down the track, several brain surgeries later, and a complete transformation of lifestyle, Michael’s life has been saved. There is also no doubt in Michael’s mind that his cell phone was a key factor in causing his brain cancer.

Although the wireless industry has always claimed that its technology is totally safe, no thorough safety testing was ever conducted before introducing cell phones into the mass market. Could it be just a coincidence that brain cancer rates in America have increased by 25 percent since the introduction of the cell phone?

Electro-Magnetic Frequency (EMF) is the measure of radiation that comes from a cell phone, cordless phone, computer, hair dryer, microwave oven, automobile, or other electrical appliances. Cell phones emit the same form of radiation as microwave ovens-just in smaller dosages. While no one would ever consider sticking their heads inside a microwave oven, every time you hold a cell phone up to your ear you are bombarding your head with microwave radiation!

EMFs are everywhere, and that’s precisely the problem. According to medical researcher Robert O. Becker, M.D, “At the present time, the greatest polluting element in the earth’s environment . . . more serious even than global climate change and chemical pollution . . . is the proliferation of electromagnetic fields.” Cell Phones and Cancer Only many years after the introduction of cell phones has scientific research become sophisticated enough to find the dangerous effects of microwave radiation from cell phones and other EMF-emitting devices. Irrefutable evidence now confirms that microwave radiation emitted by cell phones has the potential to heat up human tissue in the area of the head that the phone is pressed against.

If you think that your cordless phone is a safer bet, think again. Digital cordless phones emit the same dangerous microwave frequencies as cell phones or, in some cases, even higher levels, as do most headsets.
This thermal (heating) effect may cause headaches, fatigue, tissue swelling, memory impairment, learning difficulties, insomnia, and tingling. But there are other potentially severe long-term damages. Research concurs that EMFs interfere with cellular DNA and its repair mechanisms. In addition, cell phone radiation makes cancerous cells grow aggressively.

Mobile Safety Debate Heats Up

The danger of mobile phones is under fresh scrutiny after a study found radiation emissions can affect the body without heating up tissue.
The findings challenge fears that heating from mobile phone signals is their only potential threat to brain cells.
There is no evidence that mobile phones harm human health, but some limited research suggests that radiation from mobiles can speed up the growth of human tissue
In laboratory tests, scientists at Nottingham University, UK, have found that microwave emissions typical of mobile phones make a type of earthworm more fertile.
There is no suggestion that human fertility could be affected, but according to a report in New Scientist magazine, the results provide the first clear evidence that mobile phone radiation may have biological effects without warming tissues.

Scientists found the larvae of tiny nematode worms grew faster and became more fertile after they were exposed for a long time to weak microwave radiation, of the same strength and frequency as that emitted by mobile phones.
The proportion of worms that matured into egg-bearing adults was 28-40% higher.
By comparison, worms that had been exposed to mild heat suffered a 10% reduction in their growth rate, and virtually none developed into fertile adults.
Sir William Stewart, who chairs an expert group co-ordinating a new £7.4m research programme in the UK looking into the health risks of mobile phones, said: “These results are very important and potentially far-reaching.

Unusual behaviour
“Independent information is crucial and we need this quickly.”
David de Pomerai, who led the research, said the findings were significant because even mild heating would normally make larval worms infertile as adults.
In previous experiments, De Pomerai’s team studied worms that were genetically modified to generate a heat-stress protein when exposed to stresses other than heat.
Prolonged exposure to microwave radiation produced the stress protein, even though there appeared to be no noticeable heating.
In addition, the worms grew about 10% larger than worms not exposed to the radiation.

The experiments were inconclusive, however, because of the problem of measuring the temperature of such tiny worms.
The new research, on the other hand, ruled out any heating effect.
One theory to explain what is happening is that water molecules agitated by microwaves are attracted to water-seeking areas on the surface of proteins, influencing their ability to function.
But Mr De Pomerai said a mechanism still had to be established.
The latest results are unlikely to have an immediate impact on mobile phone safety advice.

Michael Clark from the National Radiological Protection Board, the Government’s radiation watchdog, said: “The guidelines can’t be changed on the basis of one experiment.
However good it is, it needs to be “replicated elsewhere”.
