Mobile Phones and Brain Cancer Risk In Children


A new study states that the use of mobile phones for young people not at high risk for brain cancer. However, two California scientists who have seen the report said it was not the whole story.

The scientists said the study is important, because it is the first study in this issue that focus on children.

Authors of the study are to compare the habit of using the phone in almost 1,000 children in Western Europe, including 352 children with brain tumors and 646 others do not suffer from a brain tumor. You may be relieved that the children who use mobile phones are not more likely to develop brain tumors than others, according to a study in children aged 7 to 19 years, which was published by the Journal of the National Cancer Institute of the United States.

In the last two decades, the use of mobile phones by children has soared in developed countries, with one study showing that most young people start using cell phones at age 9 or 10 years old. Children have a developing nervous system, and mobile emissions penetrates deeper into their brains. Studies have shown that brain tissue outside of children aged five to eight years of mobile energy absorbing double the amount absorbed by the adult brain.

However, public health data show no increase in brain tumors among children in the U.S. and many parts of Europe, both from the use of cell phones or other causes. Recent research “shows that the risk of substantial and directly from the phone causes brain tumors in children can be ruled out,” said Martin Roosli, lead author of the study and an epidemiologist at the Public Health Institute of Tropical and Switzerland in Basel.
