Cell phone use does not increase the risk of brain tumors

Cell phone use does not increase the risk of brain tumors

An analysis of the Million Women UK Study, which lasted for more than 20 years, found no evidence of an increased risk of developing tumors with regular use of mobile phones. This was reported by a team led by Joachim Schuse of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in Lyon in the “Journal of the National Cancer Institute.”

In the study, which began in 1996 and is still ongoing in the UK, hundreds of thousands of women answered questions about their cell phone use, first in 2001 and again in 2011. Of the 800,000 women who completed the first survey, 3,300 were infected Later a brain tumor. It didn’t matter how long and how often the women used the cell phone.

Radiation decreased significantly

Since cell phones, unlike other electronic devices, are used close to the head, questions about potential health risks have been emerging for years. The German Society of Neurology reports that mobile phone radiation is not enough to damage genetic material in the cell nucleus and cause cancer. Also, the phone’s power is not enough to increase the body temperature for example.

The study authors noted that radiation has decreased dramatically with the introduction of new generations of cell phones. Today, even with excessive use, one is likely to be exposed to the same amount as with moderate use of cell phones for the first two generations.
