The two pieces above appeared within a couple of days of one another. The first mentions a rise in brain tumors in the 20-29 year age bracket. The second piece concerns itself with the fact that the majority of those age 25-29 do not have a landline and use only a cell phone.
It does not take a medical degree to connect these dots. Perhaps a study needs to be done on the population without landlines. A short MRI developed by Dr. Kesari in San Diego could be given to the participants to see if they are walking around with a brain tumor without knowing it. Or those that have been determined to have brain tumors in that age group certainly should be questioned about their cell phone use.
Sounds logical to you and me, right? It is not that simple. The cell phone industry has a lot of money. Scientists and researchers do not. Also, many doctors at fine institutions shy away from this controversial subject as their hospital receives funds from the industry. After my husband’s craniotomy he was part of a study at the hospital where he had the surgery. Considering he has a glioma, the type of brain tumor attributable to long term cell phone use, one would assume that cell phones would have been mentioned in the questionnaire. NOPE. Lots of other questions- lead based paint, asbestos, etc. but not cell phone use. The questionnaire seemed to be one they would have used many years ago.
Please read the articles above. Remember, brain tumors generally have a lengthy latency period thus we are only seeing the tip of the iceberg now. It has also been shown that it takes at least 10 years of use of a cell phone to increase your risk of a brain tumor. We are seeing a rise in brain tumors in people in their 20’s which is so frightening as perhaps we are wrong. Perhaps this is more about dose than duration which means if someone uses the phone 2 hours a day for 5 years may be as vulnerable as someone using it 1 hour a day for 10 years. I am not a scientist.
I do know too many people who are now suffering or dead from brain tumors from their cell phone use.
