Modern-day technology sometimes requires protection

Cell Phone Gave Man a Tumor, According to Major Court Ruling

Cell Phone Use

Story at-a-glance

  • Italy’s supreme court has ruled that a man’s brain tumor was linked to his heavy cell phone use.
  • The man reportedly used a cell phone for five to six hours a day for 12 years while talking to business clients; he developed a tumor in his trigeminal nerve, at a location very close to where the phone came into contact with his head.
  • Even if you don’t use a cell phone for hours each day, research has revealed that after just 50 minutes of cell phone exposure, the emitted radiation increases brain cell activity in the region closest to the cell phone antenna.
  • Another analysis projected a very large increase in brain cancer incidence resulting from widespread mobile phone use beginning in approximately 15 years.
  • A cell phone is a two-way microwave-radiating device that has been associated with not only brain tumors but also salivary gland tumors, weakened sperm production, blood brain barrier permeability, fetal impacts, and hearing loss and tinnitus, among other issues.
  • When it comes to cell phone use, distance is your friend. Adults should not keep a cell phone in a pocket or on the body, and should use an air-tube headset or the speakerphone feature as much as possible. Children should rarely, if ever, use cell phones.
