A study from the International Agency for Research on Cancer, a panel of the World Health Organisation (WHO), which looked into has concluded that the RF produced by mobile phones is “possibly carcinogenic.” Importantly, the IARC working group, which included 31 scientists from 14 countries, did not conduct new research but reviewed available scientific literature on the topic. In an attempt to quantify this level of danger, the organisation has put handsets on a par with 240 other agents where the level of harm is uncertain. These include talcum powder, coffee, working in a drycleaners and, believe it or not, eating pickled vegetables.

Putting, for the moment, this farcical comparison to one side, worries over the harmful effects of handset radiation have been around for several decades and no investigation–regardless of how thorough–has provided conclusive evidence to support the case that mobile phone do, or do not, cause cancers.

The WHO is confident, however, when it comes to labelling alcohol, smoking and sunlight, among others, as being in Group 1–those agents proven to be associated with causing cancer in humans.

Then there is Group 2A which has “probable association, but limited evidence” of causing cancers, followed by Group 2B, which is where mobile phones are positioned with “possible association, but with limited evidence.”

The IARC has not helped dispel the many half-truths that cling to this debate by hedging its bets. The head of the IARC, Jonathan Samet, a scientist at the University of Southern California, said that some threads of evidence are telling the group how cancers might occur, but there are acknowledged gaps and uncertainties.
However, the IARC report stated that there was no clear mechanism for mobile phone RF to cause brain tumours, with the radiation from handsets being too weak to cause cancer by breaking DNA, leading scientists to suspect other, more indirect routes.

Needless to say, while this study seems not to have moved the scientific frontier on this topic any further forward, a sector of society has jumped on the key words “possibly carcinogenic” and demanded that governments and employers take immediate action.

This call to arms, not surprisingly, often recommends employing the services of these bandwagon-jumpers to fight for the rights of mobile phone users, or to protect firms from being sued by their handset-equipped workforce.

At a more objective level, mobile phones have been around for 25 years or more, with approximately 5 billion in use today. Surely, if there was a risk of these devices causing a health problem we would have seen clearer evidence by now–as against teams of expert researchers still struggling to identify the risk.

So, I’ll keep using my handset, and take the risk of eating pickled vegetables.

Mobile phones could kill far more people than smoking or asbestos, a study by an award-winning cancer expert has concluded. He says people should avoid using them wherever possible and that governments and the mobile phone industry must take “immediate steps” to reduce exposure to their radiation.

The study, by Dr Vini Khurana, is the most devastating indictment yet published of the health risks.
It draws on growing evidence – exclusively reported in the IoS in October – that using handsets for 10 years or more can double the risk of brain cancer. Cancers take at least a decade to develop, invalidating official safety assurances based on earlier studies which included few, if any, people who had used the phones for that long.

Earlier this year, the French government warned against the use of mobile phones, especially by children. Germany also advises its people to minimise handset use, and the European Environment Agency has called for exposures to be reduced.

Professor Khurana – a top neurosurgeon who has received 14 awards over the past 16 years, has published more than three dozen scientific papers – reviewed more than 100 studies on the effects of mobile phones. He has put the results on a brain surgery website, and a paper based on the research is currently being peer-reviewed for publication in a scientific journal.
He admits that mobiles can save lives in emergencies, but concludes that “there is a significant and increasing body of evidence for a link between mobile phone usage and certain brain tumours”. He believes this will be “definitively proven” in the next decade.

Noting that malignant brain tumours represent “a life-ending diagnosis”, he adds: “We are currently experiencing a reactively unchecked and dangerous situation.” He fears that “unless the industry and governments take immediate and decisive steps”, the incidence of malignant brain tumours and associated death rate will be observed to rise globally within a decade from now, by which time it may be far too late to intervene medically.

“It is anticipated that this danger has far broader public health ramifications than asbestos and smoking,” says Professor Khurana, who told the IoS his assessment is partly based on the fact that three billion people now use the phones worldwide, three times as many as smoke. Smoking kills some five million worldwide each year, and exposure to asbestos is responsible for as many deaths in Britain as road accidents.

Late last week, the Mobile Operators Association dismissed Khurana’s study as “a selective discussion of scientific literature by one individual”. It believes he “does not present a balanced analysis” of the published science, and “reaches opposite conclusions to the WHO and more than 30 other independent expert scientific reviews”.

An influential European committee known as the Council of Europe has ruled that cell phones and wireless internet connections pose a risk to human health and should subsequently be banned from schools. The committee concluded that immediate action was necessary to protect the children from the potential dangers, releasing a report that acts as a call to arms. The decision comes after mounting evidence has linked mobile phones, in addition to electromagnetic fields, to a number of harsh health ailments. With such a powerful group calling for bans on harmful electronics, it is highly possible that it will not only become law in the European Union, but across the globe as well.

In the committee’s report, parallels were drawn between mobile phones and previous items thought to be safe by the mainstream media community. The report warns against repeating mistakes that were made due to the slow medical recognition of toxic substances such as asbestos, tobacco smoking and lead in petrol. Studies, along with the backing of many experts, have generated evidence that cell phones may be the asbestos of the future — the sleeping toxic health giant.

Going beyond mobile phones, the report also highlighted the dangers of common household electronics such as cordless telephones and baby monitors. Both pieces of technology rely on similar technology and have become commonplace among citizens of the EU and abroad. The report also discusses the numerous studies conducted on the health consequences of such technologies.
