Debate on mobiles causing brain tumor continues
Bangalore: According to a paper released by international electromagnetic radiation (EMR) watchdogs, including Powerwatch and the EMR Policy Institute, brain tumor can be caused by cell phones. EMR watchdogs have sent a paper named "Cellphones and Brain Tumors: 15 Reasons for Concern, Science, Spin and the Truth behind Interphone," to government leaders and media.

"Exposure to cellphone radiation is the largest human health experiment ever undertaken, without informed consent, and has some four billion participants enrolled. Science has shown increased risk of brain tumors from use of cellphones, as well as increased risk of eye cancer, salivary gland tumors, testicular cancer, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and leukemia. The public must be informed," said Author of the report L. Lloyd Morgan who is a Retired Electronics Engineer and also member of Bio Electromagnetics Society.

The paper has revived the old debate on whether cell phones really cause brain tumor and cancer. Consumers now wonder whether to believe the paper or think that this is just another conspiracy theory. Through the report the author wants to address the design flaws in the Interphone study protocol that results in an underestimation of the risk of brain tumors from cellphone use.

The paper claims that there is a "significant" risk of brain tumors from cell phone use and EMR exposure limits that have been used by governments and supported by industry are based on the false premise that EMR has no biological effects except for heating.

The study also mentions many precautionary measures that government can implement to reduce the brain tumor risk. It suggests governments to keep certain establishments free of wireless device radiation, including schools, child day care centers, retirement homes and health care institutions. The paper also urges government of various countries to prepare their own annual reports on electromagnetic radiation exposures.

1: Guys, its high time to wake up to the realty of the damage done by our sweet (and unavoidable) mobile phone. If you visit ENT hospitals and cancer hospitals, you will come to know the truth. But, alas, how can we avoid the much-addicted mobile phone?

Yet there is a way for every problem! Recently Cogent EMR Technologies Pvt. Ltd. has invented the solution to this electro-magnetic radiation problem. If you visit their website, you will get more details about it.

I am selling the anti-EMR product of Cogent EMR Technologies in Mumbai. If anyone is interested to acquire one, you may call me on 9702076708. The cost is Rs.2000.00

3: I think the debate paper is right.What about using the headset?In that case the phone is away from brain.
Is it good using a headset instead of using the phone directly?

7: An eye opener again despite several lobbies to disprove the facts of the ill-effects. I have virtually been seeing birds vanishing from the scene due to hell mounting cell towers those emanate EMRs. While it is also a business-cum-convenience for industry as well as public, there has to be a strict awareness policy by Govts to be enforced like the ones for the usage of alchohols and cigerets. This generation has responsibility to protect the future!
