Mobile Phones Are Safe - Maybe


Originally published in Issue 2 2005 icon

In recent Danish Research (Christoffer Johansen, of the Danish Cancer Society in Copenhagen) no links were found between mobile phone usage and brain tumours. The study reviewed two types of brain tumour - glioma and meningioma, amongst a sample of 1,200 people. (Neurology April 2005).

Sir William Stewart, head of the UK Health Protection Agency, said that the scientific evidence was still too weak to say that mobile phones were safe. A previous Finnish study involving 398 people, and a Swedish study involving 1,617 people had both found an increased risk, whilst others had not. The jury is still out!
