The base stations of some home-use cordless phones emit twice as much radiation as cell phone masts. And, unlike cell phones, cordless phone base stations emit radiation even when they are not in use.
This means that some cordless phones could be a brain tumor risk.
The British Health Protection Agency has also admitted that there is an increased association between acoustic neuromas — a type of ear tumor that can cause deafness — and electromagnetic fields of the type emitted by these telephones. A study has shown that the risk of cordless phone users developing acoustic neuromas doubles over the course of a decade.
The environmental group Powerwatch has recommended that cordless phone users switch to a different type of phone.
