The highest risk for brain tumors, both malignant and benign, is found in people who have used mobile phones for more than ten years, especially on the side of the head where the phone is used.
The risk increased with cumulative use.
The risk of brain tumors was 5 times higher for people who started using mobile phones before 20 years of age.
The research were from University Hospital of Oreboro and Umea, looking at 1251 Swedes who developed brain tumors between 1997 and 2003. They formation was compared with 2438control subjects, matched for age, sex and social class.
Whatever the risks of mobile phone usage, they will be greatly compounded by the installation of smart meters in peoples homes.
The dumbly named Department Of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) says smart meters are a key part of their initiative to tackle climate change. The meters use mobile phone-type signaling to send meter readings.
Electrosensitivity UK at www.es-uk.info says people should be aware of the risks from smart meters. E/S, the Radiation Research Trust, Wired Child, and MCS-Aware have started a campaign to collect 100,000 signatures online and raise awareness of the large numbers of people who will be made sick as a result of the smart meter campaign.
3% of the population are highly sensitive to electromagnetic forces. That’s nearly 2 million people whose lives are about to be zapped. They advise all householders to refuse permission to instal smart meters.
