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.
