Large study confirms greatly increased brain cancer risk
Over 900 cancer patients from the years 1997-2003 have been compared with a control group of over 2000 persons. The conclusion is that those who have used a mobile or a cordless phone for more than one hour a day during ten years ran twice the risk of the control group to have gliomas, the most malignant form of brain tumor.
This study is the largest in the world says a coauthor, Professor Jonas Hardell, a leading independent researcher on mobile phone hazards.
