No evidence to link cell phone radiation to cancer

'No evidence' that mobiles cause cancer, but scientists still cant rule it out

Anthony J. Swerdlow ''holds shares in the telecom companies Cable and Wireless Worldwide and Cable and Wireless Communications'' and that his wife ''holds shares in the BT group, a global telecommunications services company.''

Launching the 333 page report, which reviews hundreds of studies, group chairman Professor Anthony Swerdlow said: ''I think there s a need to keep a watch on national cancer trends in relation to this, particularly with brain tumours.

''So far brain tumour rates are not rising in the sorts of age groups who have had exposure for 10, 15 years.''

''But if this is something that takes 15, 20 years or more to show up ... we need to keep watch over rates just in case.''

Researchers running cohort studies, projects following individuals' health over their lifetimes, also needed to investigate the matter to see if heavy users of mobile phones tended to develop brain tumours more than others, said Prof Swerdlow, an epidemiologist at the Institute of Cancer Reseach.

The review found no evidence that radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic fields caused by wi-fi - now widespread in schools, homes and the workplace - caused harmful effects, or could even be detected by those who claimed to be sensitive to it.

Neither did it find any evidence that mobile phone mast transmitters caused health problems.

The HPA published a new report on no risk, prepared by an advisory group. This group was presented in the Guardian newspaper as an independent group, but its chairman declared in a paper, which was published in the EHP journal, that he has a serious conflict of interest. This same paper was an attempt to downplay the IARC RF classification.

Lloyd Morgan on the HPA review




Reacholi admits he is paid in an article by Thomas Ergo

Highlights:

* Brain tumors paper: Conflicts of interest: PE (Paul Elliot) and AA (=Anssi Auvinen) are Principal Investigators (PI) of the international COSMOS Study, which is a prospective cohort study investigating the possible long-term health effects of wireless phone use. PE (=Paul Elliot) receives funding from the UK Mobile Telecommunications and Health Research (MTHR) Programme (www.mthr.org.uk), an independent body set up to provide funding for research into the possible health effects of mobile telecommunications. MTHR is jointly funded by the UK Department of Health and the mobile telecommunications industry [and is defined as independent]. PE?s research is also supported by the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust Comprehensive Biomedical Research Centre, funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and he is an NIHR Senior Investigator.

AA (=Anssi Auvinen) receives research funding for the Finnish COSMOS component from the research programme of the National Technology Agency with contributions from network operators (TeliaSonera and Elisa) and Nokia. AA was the PI of the Finnish component of the Interphone consortium that was funded through the Fifth EU Framework programme, with partial funding from the Mobile Manufacturers Forum and the GSM Association (with UICC as the firewall). All other authors [Paolo Vecchia, Michael Repacholi, Martin Roosli, Alexander Lerchl, Anna Lahkola, and more] reported no conflicts of interest."

''Auvinen was the second author of the 2007 article claiming that cordless phones were not enquired about. He is now employed at the IARC where his main task is to evaluate data from Interphone that are still not published. He is also an expert to the EU as a member of the SCENIHR.''

Mobile phones and glioma risk

Association of mobile phone use with adult brain cancer remains plausible

Little and colleagues compare the observed patterns for glioma incidence in the US from 1992 to 2008 for non-Hispanic white people with estimated rates based on glioma risks found by the INTERPHONE Study Group and Hardell et al, concluding that there is no evidence linking glioma with use of mobile phones.1 2 3
