French Study Links Cell Phones with Brain Tumors

A frightening new French study links cell phone use with brain tumors. More brain tumors will occur over the next ten years because of cell phone use. This French study led reviewers to conclude "If the French results hold up, it would indicate that cell phone-induced brain tumors can develop more quickly than current hypotheses suggest." A large number of people were tested, meaning the results are quite significant. The more you use your phone the more likely you'll get a brain tumor. Researchers said: "[T]hose who had made the most phone calls (over 5,100) had about 50% more gliomas [brain tumors]." And, "Those who were on a cell phone for the longest total amount of time (260 hours or more) had 80% more gliomas." A glioma is a brain tumor.
