    Default Mobile phonesdo not raise risk of brain cancer

    Using a mobile phone does not increase the risk of brain cancer, claim scientists.
    Research into cancer rates of one of the largest groups of mobile phone users ever studied found no difference compared with people who did not use them.
    It is the second major study this year to rule out any change in rates of the disease
    Thank you bala

    The latest Danish study investigated data on more than 358,000 mobile users over 18 years, thought to be the longest follow-up so far.
    But campaigners insisted the research was 'seriously flawed' and would falsely reassure mobile phone users.
    Researchers led by the Institute of Cancer Epidemiology in Copenhagen found cancer rates in the central nervous system were almost the same in both long-term mobile phone users and non-users.

    They studied the whole Danish population aged over 30 and born in Denmark after 1925 by gathering information on subscribers to mobile phones from the Danish phone network operators and from the Danish Cancer Register.
    They analysed data of 10,729 central nervous system tumours between 1990 and 2007, says a report in bmj.com (the online site of the British Medical Journal).
    When the figures were restricted to people with the longest use of mobile phones – 13 years or more – the cancer rates were almost the same as that among non-subscribers.

    The researchers said they observed no overall increased risk for tumours of the central nervous system or for all cancers combined in mobile phone users.
    There have been fears that cancer could be triggered by the brain's exposure to electromagnetic radiation emitted from mobile handsets held to the ear.
    But the researchers said they observed no overall increased risk for tumours of the central nervous system or for all cancers combined in mobile phone users.





    The authors said: 'The extended follow-up allowed us to investigate effects in people who had used mobile phones for 10 years or more, and this long-term use was not associated with higher risks of cancer.
    'However, as a small to moderate increase in risk for subgroups of heavy users or after even longer induction periods than 10-15 years cannot be ruled out, further studies with large study populations, where the potential for misclassification of exposure and selection bias is minimised, are warranted.'

    Vicky Fobel, director of MobileWise, a charity advising on mobile phone and health, said: 'All this shows that this study and the press release promoting its findings are misleading the public by implying that phone users have the all clear.
    'The study only looked at short-term use of mobile phones and by mis-analysing the data has massively underestimated the risks. All the other studies that have looked at the long-term risks have found a link between phone use and brain tumours.
    'This study gives false reassurance and distracts us from the important job of helping the public, especially children, to cut the risk from mobiles.'
