Alarming new research indicates that children and teenagers are five times more likely to get brain cancer if they use mobile phones.The Swedish research was reported this month at the first international conference on mobile phones and health. It came from a further analysis of data from one of the biggest studies carried out on the mobile phone/cancer link, headed by Professor Lennart Hardell. Professor Hardell told the conference that "people who started mobile phone use before the age of 20" had more than five-fold increase in glioma, a cancer of the glial cells that support the central nervous system.
The risk to young people from household cordless phones was almost as great. Cordless phones caused a fourfold increase in risk.
Young cell phone users were also five times more likely to get acoustic neuromas, disabling tumours of the auditory nerve that often cause deafness.
