Cell Phone Study

 

Funded Cell Phone Study Gains Ground. An expert on cell phone radiation is slamming an industry-funded study that claims there is no link between the radiation emitted by the devices and cancer. The study, conducted by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection, claims to have debunked a recent World Health Organization (WHO) finding that cell phone radiation is a possible human carcinogen.

Among other things, Dr. Devra Davis scoffed at the Commission’s assertion that funding from industry groups like the Mobile Manufacturers’ Forum didn’t influence its findings. Dr. Davis claims the study’s conclusions are wrong and misleading, and says the study is propaganda.

Accumulating Evidence Is Increasing

The International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection published its study in Environmental Health Perspectives.  It proclaims the “trend in the accumulating evidence is increasingly against the hypothesis that mobile phone use can cause brain tumors in adults.”  As evidence, the researchers point to “Studies from several countries have shown no indication of increases in brain tumor incidence up to 20 years after the introduction of mobile phones and 10 years after their use became widespread.”

But Dr. Davis, who runs the group Environmental Health Trust, told the Toronto Sun that the group’s conclusions don’t pass muster.

“The fact that we don’t have an epidemic (of brain cancer) right now is of course what we expect,” she said. “It is actually preposterous to imply or they really say that because don’t have any increase now, there’s no problem. It’s really very sad.”

Dr. Davis insisted that cell phone radiation constitutes a major public health issue, and said governments should not wait to take action until there are “enough sick people or dead bodies.”
