300% Increased brain cancer risk for long-term users of cell phones and cordless phones, new study reveals

Lloyd Burrell

(NaturalNews) A Swedish study on the use of wireless phones, including cell  phones and cordless phones, has uncovered a link between electromagnetic  radiation exposures and the risk of malignant and non-malignant brain  tumors.
Cell phones and cordless phones emit a form of non-ionizing  electromagnetic radiation, radiation which can be absorbed by tissues and cells  that come into close contact with the phone, e.g., the head and neck. The most  conclusive evidence as to the dangers of cell phone and similar radiation  exposures come from studies on long-term exposure (ten years or more) like this  Swedish study.

300% increased risk for long term users

This new study reveals that  people who used cell phones and cordless phones for more than a year were at a  70% greater risk of brain cancer compared to those who used cell phones and  cordless phones for a year or less. Those who used cell phones and cordless  phones for more than 25 years were found to have a 300% greater risk of brain  cancer than those who used cell phones and cordless phones for a year or  less.
The total number of hours of cell phone and cordless phone use was  found to be as important as the number of years of use. A quarter of the study’s  subjects were found to have lifetime cell phone or cordless phone use of 2,376  or more hours, which corresponds to about 40 minutes a day over ten years.  Heavier users were found to have a 250% greater risk of brain tumors compared to  those who’d never used cell phones or cordless phones or used them for less than  39 hours in their lifetime.

Brain cancer risk highest on side of head used to phone

This new study  echoes the previous study findings of the decade long 13-nation Interphone  study, which found a 180% greater risk of brain cancer among those who used cell  phones for 1,640 or more hours in their lifetime. But it also goes further.
