New York, New York (PRWEB) January 16, 2013
Amid growing concerns of a possible connection between cell phones and brain cancer, a group of scientists is warning that exposure to radiofrequency (RF) radiation emitted by wireless devices may pose serious health risks to cell phone users, as well as pregnant women and young children. According to a report issued by the BioInitiative Working Group 2012, there is a consistent pattern of increased risk for glioma (a malignant brain tumor) associated with the use of mobile and cordless phones. The authors of the report call for new safety standards for wireless exposure, including the classification of RF radiation as a human carcinogen. The BioInitiative 2012 Report was prepared by 29 independent scientists from 10 countries and reviewed more than 1,800 new scientific studies.*
“This is one more study to add to the growing body of research linking use of cell phones and brain tumors. We are are pleased more attention is being focused on this important issue,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm that represents the victims of defective consumer products. The firm is currently investigating the link between cell phones and brain cancer, and is actively representing plaintiffs in cell phone radiation lawsuits.
Cell phones and Brain Cancer
In October, the Italian Supreme Court ruled on a case involving a connection between cell phones and brain tumors, finding a causal link between a man’s heavy cell phone use and a tumor he developed. The Italian court’s finding is backed by a growing body of research that suggests a link between cell phone radiation and brain tumors.** For example, the World Health Organization’s International Agency on Research for Cancer (IARC) classified cell phone radiation as possibly carcinogenic in May 2011, after the Interphone study found that using cell phones for as little as 30 minutes per day resulted in a 40% increased risk for glioma.***
The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently submitted a proposal to reevaluate cell phone radiation emission standards, something it has not done since 1996**** The U.S. Government Accountability Office (“GAO”) has criticized the current standards as being outdated compared to those of international regulatory agencies, and for failing to reflect the most recent research on cell phone radiation.*****
