People who started using mobile as teenagers and have been doing so for more than a decade are at a five-fold risk of developing a common type of brain cancer, new evidence indicates.
The Swedish study found large increased incidence of astrocytoma, the most common form of a malignant brain tumour type called glioma, in those who had been using mobiles for over 10 years.

Campaigners said the research, published in the International Journal of Oncology, was further evidence of the need to educate children of the potential dangers of talking on mobile phones.
Researchers from the University Hospital of Örebro and Umeå University examined the mobile and cordless phone use of more than 1,200 Swedes, who were diagnosed with malignant brain cancer between 1997 and 2003.

Of those, the 905 who were still alive were interviewed about their phone usage. For the remaining 346 who had died., researchers asked their relatives about their loved-ones’ telephone habits.
They then compared this to phone use information on almost 2,500 ‘controls’ who were either living and had no brain cancer, or had died of other causes. Each ‘case’ and each ‘control’ was matched for age, sex and social class.
The team concluded that using both mobiles and cordless phones led to “an increased risk for malignant brain tumours”.
People who started using mobiles as teenagers, and have done so for at least 10 years, were 4.9 times more likely to develop astrocytoma, compared to controls.

Worringly, the comparable figure for cordless home phones – which are very similar to mobiles in terms of radiation emission – was almost as high, at 3.9.
Looking at the whole group, regardless of age of first ise of mobile or cordless phone, they found that usage for more than 10 years increased the risk of all malignant tumours by 30 per cent, and astrocytomas in particular by 40 per cent.

The study comes weeks after the International Agency for Research on Cancer, part of the World Health Organisation, stated that radiation from handsets was “possibly carcinogenic”, although it stopped short of declaring there was a clear link.
The Department of Health advises that “children and young people under 16 should be encouraged to use mobile phones for essential purposes only, and to keep calls short”.

Alasdair Philips, director of the campain group Powerwatch, said studies like the Swedish one “highlighted the need to teach our children that mobile phone use can be very dangerous to their long-term health”.

Instead of calling they should text or use “air-tube” hands-free headsets which eliminated the risk of radiation, he said.
Although an increasing number of people wear Bluetooth wireless headsets or standard wired earplugs, both still carry the risk of radiation – the former because it is itself a transmitter, and the latter because radiation can pass down the wire into the ear.
Air-tubes, such as the Air2Hear, cut radiation exposure to the brain to almost zero by replacing the last six inches of wire with a hollow tube down.

According to official cancer registeries, there are about 8,600 diagnoses of ‘primary’ brain tumour per year in the UK.
However, according to the Samantha Dickson Brain Tumour Trust, it is “widely accepted that these figures are an under-estimate of the actual numbers”.

The true number could be almost double that, the charity fears.
A spokesman said: “The human cost is alarming. Malignant primary brain tumours take more years off the average person’s life than any other cancer. They are the most significant cause of cancer death amongst men under 45 and women under 35, and approximately 500 children are diagnosed with a primary brain tumour each year.”

Neil Dickson, founder of the charity, said of the Swedish study: “The findings do give us cause for concern.
“We have contributed to a recent paediatric study in Europe and we are waiting the full results from this so together with reports such as this, it is clear to us that further research is urgently needed in this area.”

We know that cell phones kill people through accidents at a far higher rate than they would ever kill people due to brain tumors,” he added.

“There were suggestions of an increased risk of glioma in long-term mobile phone users with high radio frequency exposure and of similar, but apparently much smaller, increases in meningioma risk. The uncertainty of these results requires that they be replicated before a causal interpretation can be made,” the study authors concluded.

John Walls, vice president for public affairs for CTIA-The Wireless Association, said that “the peer-reviewed scientific evidence has overwhelmingly indicated that wireless devices, within the limits established by the FCC [Federal Communications Commission], do not pose a public health risk or cause any adverse health effects.”
In a companion study in the same issue of the journal, the same group of researchers looked at the effect of levels of radio frequency on the risk of developing brain tumors. They concluded that “while amount and duration of use are important determinants of radio frequency dose in the brain, their impact can be substantially modified by communication system, frequency band and location in the brain.”

“It is important to take these into account in analysis of risk of brain tumors from radio frequency exposure from mobile phones,” they added.

Dr. Ezriel R. Kornel, a brain and spine surgeon at Northern Westchester Hospital Center in Mount Kisco, N.Y., said even though the risk is small “there is enough concern that I think cell phone usage should be limited if you are not using an ear piece or speaker phone.”

Dr. Nagy El Sayyad, an assistant professor in the department of radiation oncology at the University of Miami Sylvester Cancer Center and Miller School of Medicine, agreed that, despite the lack of conclusive evidence, it is better to err on the side of caution. “If people are heavy users, text rather than phone, use a land line rather than a cell phone,” he said.

HealthDay Reporter

FRIDAY, June 10 (HealthDay News) — The debate over whether or not cell phones might cause brain tumors continues, as a new international study finds a small risk among people who are heavy cell phone users or who have used them for a long time.

Dr. Otis Brawley, chief medical officer of the American Cancer Society, was not involved with the latest research, but said that “the study is not conclusive that cell phones cause brain tumors.”
The study shows a correlation between cell phone use and the risk of brain tumors, Brawley said. “But this is a suggestion, it is by no means definitive,” he said.
Brawley noted there is an ongoing study bombarding the brains of mice with radio frequency radiation to see if brain tumors develop. “If that study is positive, that’s going to really tell us that cell phones are not good. If that study is negative, the debate will continue,” he said.

The latest report was published in the June 10 online edition of Occupational and Environmental Medicine.
Recently, the World Health Organization (WHO) added cell phones to its list of things that might cause cancer. WHO said cell phones are “possibly carcinogenic to humans” and placed them in the same category as the pesticide DDT and gasoline engine exhaust.
For the new study, a research team led by Elisabeth Cardis, from the Centre for Research in Environmental Epidemiology at the Hospital del Mar Research Institute in Barcelona, Spain, collected data on 1,229 people with brain tumors and 3,673 people without brain tumors.

People in the study were asked about how much they used their cell phones, and what phones they used.
These data are part of the Interphone Study, which is an international study of the risk of cancerous brain tumors with cell phone use that was largely funded by the Mobile Manufacturers’ Forum and the Global System for Mobile Communications, two industry groups.

The researchers found that a higher risk of developing a glioma among those who used their cell phones for 10 years or more. They also had a much smaller risk of developing a meningioma, or benign tumor.

Even with these potential increased risks, the incidence of brain tumors is fairly rare. “Brain tumor incidence rates have been flat to slightly declining over the last 20 years,” Brawley said. “That’s not consistent with brain tumors being caused by cell phones.”

It is said that life begins at 40! Well, it could be true since this is the age when most people already reach their established life. But this is also the age when degenerative health problems begin to appear. Osteoporosis is one of them. Like it or not, people at 40 starts to get the risk of osteoporosis. Without huge concern on it, it could become huge problem when you get older.

There are many factors affecting the risk of osteoporosis and there are tons of articles already talk about it. What this article wants to reveal is the correlation between cellphone radiation and osteoporosis. Off course we already well informed about long lasting controversy of cellphone radiation. Despite of its multipurpose benefits, cellphone emitted electromagnetic radiation that could give bad effects to our body.

However, most of us may not very familiar how cell phone radiation could increase the risks of osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is among negative symptom when the bones could no longer maintain its density making it unable to support our body. It is believed that sufficient calcium intake could lower the risk of osteoporosis.
However, the handheld device we couldn’t live without could be one more factor affecting osteoporosis risk. A new research conducted in Argentina revealed that cell phone electromagnetic radiation could reduce bone density. The research conducted on a group of people whose been asked to keep cell phone on the holster attached to wristband during a certain duration.

The result showed that there were significant reducing of bone mineral content and bone mineral density on the pelvic bone at the side where the cell phone attached compared to other side where no cell phone attached. It is concluded that cell phone radiation could affect bone density reduction, significant symptom of osteoporosis.

It is one more bad effect of cell phone to our health. But there’s no technology without risk, isn’t it? Like it or not, cell phone has too much benefits that instead of its bad effects, we prefer to keep using it. The good news for us, cell phone manufacturers are developing new technology to minimize radiation emission from cell phone radiofrequency. Several GSM and other cellular consortium have been reporting advanced development of new technology. However, it is our lifestyle that will define how high the risk of osteoporosis affecting our life today and tomorrow – We need to use our cellphone responsibly!!

MANILA, Philippines – The House committee on health is set to conduct an inquiry into the possible health risks of the use of mobile phones.

The investigation was prompted by House Resolution 1372 filed by Ang Kasangga sa Kaunlaran party-list Rep. Teodorico Haresco directing the panel “to conduct an inquiry, in aid of legislation, regarding the possible risk of over-exposure to cellular phone usage to the health of its users.”
“Most people nowadays rely almost exclusively on cell phones for daily communication. But can these ubiquitous gadgets possibly cause cancer if used excessively?” Haresco said. “We want clear answers, not busy signals.”

He pointed out the World Health Organization’s (WHO) International Agency for Research on Cancer had recently announced that cell phones could be a “possible” carcinogen, putting them in the same category as diesel fumes, dry cleaning fluid, talcum powder and coffee.
A team of 31 scientists from 14 countries made the findings after going through peer-reviewed studies on cell phone safety and found enough evidence to categorize personal exposure as “possibly carcinogenic to humans,” he said.

Haresco said in the light of these initial findings, the telecommunications and wireless industry should give the public some sort of warning that long-term exposure to radiation from cell phone usage could possibly cause cancer.
He said it is imperative to regulate children’s cell phone usage if it is proven that they are more susceptible to cancer.
Haresco said it is incumbent upon Congress to establish the regulatory framework for the telecommunications and wireless industry, taking into consideration the social and health costs.
The type of radiation that the cell phone emits is called “non-ionizing.”
It is not like the radiation coming from photocopying machines, but more like “a very low-powered microwave oven cooking the brain,” he said.

He cited the findings of Dr. Keith Black, chairman of neurology at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, that “in addition to leading to a development of cancer and tumors, there could be a whole host of other effects like cognitive memory function, since the memory temporal lobes are where we hold our cell phones.”
Black said the impact of radiation among the youth can be much larger because “children’s skulls and scalps are thinner and that radiation can penetrate deeper into their brains.”

The WHO, however, also recognized that, at present, no adverse health effects had been established, he said.
It is believed that most environmental and health risks take several decades of exposure before the adverse consequences are manifested or detected.

The European Environmental Agency is pushing for more research studies, saying cell phones could be as big a public health risk as smoking, asbestos and leaded gasoline, he said.

Mobile phones “possibly” cause brain cancer, according to a report this week from the IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer), part of the WHO (World Health Organization). The report has triggered over 3,000 news articles around the world. Like you, I’m not interested in marginal changes around small lifestyle risks for the risks themselves; but I am interested in the methodological issues they throw up.

First, transparency: science isn’t about authoritative utterances from men in white coats, it’s about showing your working. What does this report say? How do they reason around contradictory data? Nobody can answer those questions, because the report isn’t available. Nobody you see writing confidently about it has read it. There is only a press release. Nobody at IARC even replied to my emails requesting more information.

This isn’t just irritating. Phones are a potential risk exposure where people can make a personal choice. People want information. It’s in the news right now. The word “possibly” informs nobody. How can we put flesh on that with the research that is already published, and what are the limits of the research?

The crudest data you could look at is the overall rate of different brain cancers: this hasn’t changed much over time, despite an increase in mobile phone use, but it’s a crude measure, affected by lots of stuff.
Ideally, we’d look at individuals, to see if greater mobile use is correlated with brain cancer, but that can be tricky. These tumours are rare – about 10 cases in every 100,000 people each year – and that affects how you research them.

For common things, such as heart disease, you take a few thousand people and measure factors you think are relevant – smoking, diet, some blood tests – then wait a few years until they get the disease. This is a “prospective cohort study”, but they’re less useful for studying rare tumours because you won’t get enough cases appearing in your study group to spot an association with your potential cause.
For rare diseases, you do a “retrospective case-control study”: gather lots of cases; get a control group of people who don’t have the rare disease, but are otherwise similar; then finally, see if your cases are more or less likely to report being exposed to mobile phones.

This sounds fine, but such studies are vulnerable to the frailties of memory. If someone has a tumour on the left of their head, say, and you ask, “Which side did you mostly use your phone on 10 years ago?”, they might unintentionally be more likely to remember “the left”. In one study, 10 cases (but no controls) reported phone usage figures that overall worked out as more than 12 hours a day, which might be an exaggeration.

Then there are other problems, such as time course: it’s possible that mobile phones might cause brain cancer but through exposure over 30 years, while we’ve only got data for 10 or 20 years, so the future risk may be unknowable right now (though, to be fair, exposures that cause peak problems after decades, such as asbestos, do still have measurable effects after only 10 years). And then, of course, phones change over time: 20 years ago phones had more powerful transmitters, for example. So we might get a false alarm, or false reassurance, by measuring the impact of irrelevant technology.

But lastly, as so often, there’s the issue of a large increase in a small baseline risk. The absolute worse case scenario, from the Interphone study, is this: it found phone use overall was associated with fewer tumours, which is odd. But very, very high phone use was associated with a 40% increase in tumours. If everyone used their phones that much – an extreme assumption – and the effect is true, this would still only take you from 10 cases in 100,000 people to 14 cases in 100,000 people.
So that’s what “possible” looks like. As I said, the risk is less interesting than the science behind it.

THE battle by a group of Windhoek residents to keep a MTC cellphone tower out of their neighbourhood was boosted this year when a number of reports on the potential health risks from cellphone radio frequencies were released.

The European Parliament in May decided that there is enough evidence “of potentially harmful effects of electromagnetic fields on fauna, flora and human health to react and guard against potentially serious environmental and health hazards”.

In line with this, a document on the potential dangers associated with cellphone usage and cellphone towers noted that while scientific and clinical proof is still lacking, European member states have to take precautionary measures.

“Waiting for high levels of scientific and clinical proof can lead to very high health and economic costs, as was the case in the past with asbestos, leaded petrol and tobacco,” the Parliament report states.
The report focused on protecting children from the potential harmful effects. The report said it is critical to alert parents, teachers and other of the “specific risks of early, ill-considered and prolonged use of mobiles and other devices emitting microwaves”.

It said preventative action is needed now, especially in regard to the anxieties and fears which remain in wide sectors of the population regarding the unknown health hazards that could be linked to the electromagnetic fields emitted from cellphones and cellphones towers.
European member states have been advised to ensure that their populations are exposed to as little as possible radio frequencies from mobile phones and cellphone towers.

Anita Brandt, one of several litigants who took on the cellphone giant MTC last year, pointed out in a letter this week that questions regarding cellphone usage and cellphone towers gained international traction, not only from the European Parliament report, but also from two World Health Organisation reports.

Brandt and a group of seven Klein Windhoek residents in December won a temporary court order barring MTC from putting up a cellphone tower on a hill in the Klein Windhoek area, until another case at the High Court is finalised.

Brandt listed a World Health Organisation (WHO) report which stated that radiation from cellphones could cause cancer. The WHO report listed cellphones in the same “carcinogenic hazard” category as lead, engine exhaust and chloroform, an international article on the WHO report stated.

Brandt wrote that the reports from respected international bodies is essential reading, especially for “sceptics who still claim that this is unscientific and scaremongering nonsense”.
She added that current safety guidelines for radio frequency emissions “were designed to protect only against short-term, immediate health effects. They do not protect against long-term biological responses of the body to permanent radio frequency pulsing”.
She said a debate on the issue was critical in Namibia.

People who use mobile phone may be prone to increased brain cancer risk and should use texting and free-hands devices to reduce exposure, say the WHO’s cancer experts.

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 CTIA-The Wireless Association dismissed the report saying the UN agency “conducts numerous reviews and in the past has given the same score to, for example, pickled vegetables and coffee.”

This classification “does not mean cell phones cause cancer,” the industry association said in a statement, noting that “limited evidence from statistical studies can be found even though bias and other data flaws may be the basis for the results.”

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. http://www.emfnews.org/store/earthing-grounding-barefoot-technology-products-1.html

July 2, 2011

The World Health Organization (WHO) announced Tuesday that a panel of experts has concluded that cell phones can possibly cause brain cancer.

After a review of dozens of published studies, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) told the international media at a press briefing in France that radiation from cell phones can possibly cause cancer.

The review put mobile phones in the in the same “carcinogenic hazard” category as lead, engine exhaust and chloroform.
Before the announcement, the WHO had assured consumers that no adverse health effects had been established.
That changed after the team of 31 scientists from 14 countries, including the United States, made the decision after reviewing peer-reviewed studies on cell phone safety.
The team found enough evidence to categorize personal exposure as “possibly carcinogenic to humans”.

An oncologist contacted by National Weekly, speaking on condition of anonymity, said, he has not read the report, but would not ignore the findings, as there could be a real correlation between cell-phones and brain cancer. However, he said, that any possibility of cancer would come from excessive placement of a cell phone to one’s ear. He also agreed that as a precaution, cell phone users should use listening devices that preclude them placing the actually phone to their ear.

But long before the report, manufacturers of many popular cell phones already warn consumers to keep their device away from their body.
According to a report in the Trinidad Guardian, The Apple iPhone 4 safety manual says users’ radiation exposure should not exceed FCC guidelines: “When using iPhone near your body for voice calls or for wireless data transmission over a cellular network, keep iPhone at least 15 millimeters (5/8 inch) away from the body.”
And the BlackBerry Bold advises users to “keep the BlackBerry device at least 0.98 inch (25 millimeters) from your body when the BlackBerry device is transmitting.”

Since the invention of the cell phone there have been various conflicting reports that the instruments do or do not contribute to brain cancer. The negative reports have never created a decline in the demand for these phones which are a common means of communication by millions of people globally.

Heather Dale / June 1, 2011

As someone who is regularly glued to her cell phone, this isn’t the greatest news of the day: the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) warns that cell phones may increase the risk of cancer. Panel chairman Jonathan Samet, MD, chair of preventive medicine at the USC Keck School of Medicine says:

“After reviewing all the evidence available, the IARC working group classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans . . . We reached this conclusion based on a review of human evidence showing increased risk of glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer, in association with wireless phone use.”
Scary stuff.

The cell phone industry responded to these findings by saying that it “does not mean cell phones cause cancer.” While this study doesn’t prove that the radiation from cell phones cause cancer, it does show that there is certainly a correlation, but that more studies need to be conducted to further prove or disprove these conclusions. In the meantime, here are some ways to minimize exposure to cell phone radiation.

• Use your speakerphone or a hands-free device: To maximize the distance to you and your phone, use the speakerphone feature on your phone, or a hands-free accessory like an earpiece. Holding your phone just two inches away from you drops the radiation by a factor of four.
• Avoid using your cell phone when moving around: Whenever you aren’t stationary in one spot, your cell phone will be trying to connect to a cellular tower since this is when they have the weakest signal. In doing so, your phone emits the most radiation, so try to avoid using your phone in elevators, buildings, and rural areas.
• Become a texter: Texting and emailing from your phone doesn’t require it to be against your head, so if you can text instead of talk, try using this method instead.
• How smart is your phone? According to CNN Tech, if you’re wondering how much radiation your phone emits, the general rule is — the smarter the phone, the more radiation you’re exposed to.
