Cellphone don’t increase cancer threat

According to a Danish research, the 5 billion people internationally chatting away on cell phones should not worry about a heightened risk of brain cancer.

One of the largest and longest studies on the subject discovers an end to brain tumors among people who had cell phones over 17 years compared to those people, who does not have cell phones.

Although no one study can exclude harm with absolute confidence, the risk is too low,” as stated by Dr. Ezriel E. Kornel, director of the Neuroscience Institute at Northern Westchester Hospital in Mount Kisco, N.Y.

Previous studies have not proven that the use of cell phone causes some harm to the user.  Although there is a lot of study that does not find some harm, there were a handful of studies that shows high risk of malevolent brain tumors.

Based on the entirety of on hand evidence the World Health Organization in May categorized cell phones as probably carcinogenic to humans, and placed them in the same grouping as the pesticide DDT and gasoline engine exhaust.

Experts  worried that radio frequency electromagnetic fields emitted by a cell phone held close to the ear could trigger a tumor growth.

This new study, headed by researchers from the Institute of Cancer Epidemiology in Copenhagen,  summarized to an earlier test that also had discovered no increased danger in cell phone users. Their newest report  published in the Oct. 20 issue of BMJ.

Here, the researchers examined data coming from over 360,000 people in Denmark who had  cell phone subscriptions.

There was no change in tumor incidence between the two groups in general or for people who owns cell phones for 13 years or longer.

Also, there was no hint that tumors might be more ordinary in areas of the brain closest to the ear where the cell phone got apprehended.

There was a singularly minor increased chance of glioma, a  malevolent brain tumor, in men, but the difference almost vanished after five years.

That might potentially signify that people who used cell phones more have a greater risk of acquiring tumor but, over the years, the effect washes out since people who were in danger of getting tumors already got them, as said Dr. Michael Schulder, vice chairman of neurosurgery at the Cushing Neuroscience Institute of the Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine in Manhasset, N.Y.

Kornel noted that there is a limitation in the new study.  The new study failed to look at how long or often people used their cell phones or if, in fact, they used them at all.
