Cell Phones Protection Cancer
* March 30, 2008 – ‘Mobile phones ‘more dangerous than smoking’ – A self-published and non-peer reviewed meta-study by Dr. Vini Khurana, an Australian neurosurgeon, presented an “”increasing body of evidence … for a link between mobile phone usage and certain brain tumours”" and that it “”is anticipated that this danger has far broader public health ramifications than asbestos and smoking”". On Larry King, on May 27, 2008, Dr. Khurana said: “”the concern is not just brain tumors, but other health effects associated or reported to be associated with cell phones, including behavioral disturbances, salivary gland tumors, male infertility and microwave sickness syndrome”". However, according to Wikipedia, this was criticized as ‘…an unbalanced analysis of the literature, which is also selective in support of the author’s claims.’
* February 2008: Tokyo Women’s Medical University compared phone use in 322 brain cancer patients with 683 healthy people and found that regularly using a mobile did not significantly affect the likelihood of getting brain cancer. “”Using our newly developed and more accurate techniques, we found no association between mobile phone use and cancer, providing more evidence to suggest they don’t cause brain cancer,”" Naohito Yamaguchi, who led the research, said. His team’s findings were published in the British Journal of Cancer.
* December 5, 2006 – Scientists in Denmark tracked over 420,000 cell phone users over the course of 21 years in an attempt to determine if if cell phone use causes cancer. As reported in ABC News, they found the RF energy produced by the phones did not correlate to an increased incidence of the disease. From the article: ‘This so-called Danish cohort “”is probably the strongest study out there because of the outstanding registries they keep,’ said Joshua Muscat of Pennsylvania State University, who also has studied cell phones and cancer. ‘As the body of evidence accumulates, people can become more reassured that these devices are safe, but the final word is not there yet,’ Muscat added.”"
