Mobile phone concerns

A team led by Professor Kjell Mild, a Swedish biophysicist, who has produced a number of many leading mobile-phone health effects papers has published an update on his brain-tumour work in the summer of 2001, when he discussed his results to date at an international conference chaired by Alasdair Philips of Powerwatch.

Another study by Dr Lennart Hardell, published in the International Journal of Oncology, was based on the analysis of 1,600 tumour victims who had been using mobile phones for up to 10 years before being diagnosed. Prof. Mild now states: ¡The evidence for a connection between phone use and cancer is clear and convincing. The more you use phones and the greater the number of years you have them, the greater the risk of brain tumours. ... Mobile phones are here to stay so my advice is never to use one without a hands-free headset.¢

An earlier study by Mild, a cancer specialist, linked brain tumours to the use of analogue mobile phones. The new research repeated this and also looked at digital mobiles and DECT cordless phones. It showed that all three types were linked with increased tumour rates. The extra tumours only start to really show up after about 5 years use, but there is increasing dose-related-response with minutes of use per month and number of years of use.

Since 1980, the number of acoustic neuromas (a rare tumour) diagnosed in Britain has risen from one in every 100,000 of the population to one in 80,000 a year. Some (but not all) other types of tumour also show an increase.

Dr Richard Sullivan, head of clinical programmes at Cancer Research UK and quoted in the Sunday Times on 16th March 2003, said the study was worrying. ¡It suggests a strong link between mobile phones and brain tumours. We now need a full-scale study.¢

On 14 October a study by the Karolinska Institute in Sweden found a
pronounced risk of acoustic nuroma (cancer) from use of mobile phones over
a ten year period (imagine: aged just from 14 to 24: ages of many big
users of mobile phones).

wonderful distortion, sticking this paragraph between the other two,
so a quick reader will make some connection

So oncologists have managed to improve diagnosis rates for a rare
condition that affects a few hundred people a year. And some others.

It isn't clear how they managed to use mobile phones to do so

There is no evidence of any link here at all - perhaps it is simple
coincidence that diagnosis rates have improved dues to better tools
and improved skills in detection
