Report: Cell phones cause brain tumors

There are several long running point and counterpoint arguments in the technology world. Among the most common are do video games cause violence in those who play them and one of the longest running is the debate over whether cell phones cause brain tumors or not.

A new report called “Cellphones and Brain Tumors: 15 Reasons for Concern, Science, Spin and the Truth Behind Interphone” was released today by the international EMF activists in conjunction with Powerwatch and Radiation research Trust in the UK among others. The report claims that previous studies on the topic were flawed.

According to the report, so-called “systemic-skew” has greatly underestimated the brain tumor risk associated with the use of cell phones. Among the items that caused the skew in previous studies were categorizing subjects using portable phones as unexposed and excluding many different types of brain tumors. People who had died from the tumors were also reportedly eliminated from previous studies. Hit the link above to read the details of the report.
