“Long-term use of both mobile and cordless phones is associated with an increased risk for glioma, the most common type of brain tumor, the latest research on the subject concludes.
The new study shows that the risk for glioma was tripled among those using a wireless phone for more than 25 years and that the risk was also greater for those who had started using mobile or cordless phones before age 20 years.“
Cell phone use, as well as landline cordless phone use, puts the user at risk. Both phones use wireless communication in the form of radiofrequency or RF radiation to send and receive signals. If the phone is held up to the ear, these radiofrequencies will be absorbed by the brain, as well as the eye. The brain, being electromagnetic in nature, has an affinity towards electrical frequencies and, as a result, a very high absorption rate of these electromagnetic frequencies.
When the brain absorbs these type of radiation, cells can become irregular or damaged due to the intensity of the frequencies as well as the heating of the tissue, a result of the thermal effects of the frequencies. There are even studies showing DNA damage as a result of cell exposure to RF radiation.
The Swedish study looked at approximately 1498 cases of brain tumors. These tumors were all malignant, with 92% being gliomas and about 50% of the gliomas being astrocytoma grade IV, the most malignant variety of brain tumor.
The study also found:
“…an increased risk for glioma associated with use for more than 1 year of both mobile and cordless phones…The highest risk was for those with the longest latency for mobile phone use over 25 years.”
