Cell Phones and Cancer: What a New Study Shows

There is no correlation between cell phone use and increased risk of developing brain cancer in young people International Environment».

Scientists have studied how exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) from wireless devices (mobile and fixed) affects brain tumors in young people. The result was that no causal relationship was found between this type of cancer and the use of radiofrequency (RF) and extremely low frequency (ELF) electromagnetic fields by the devices.

How was the study done

During the study, data analysis was performed on a sample of 899 young people aged 10 to 24 with brain tumors. The vast majority of study participants were wireless phone users, even in the youngest age group. The study found that most of the tumors were of the neuroepithelial type and belonged to gliomas.

At the same time, scientists admit that, so far, the number of patients is not yet sufficient to assess all the possible effects of mobile phone use.

Commenting on the study, Blochin, deputy director of Research and Education at the Blochin Research Institute for Pediatric Hematology and Oncology, called attention to its relevance. As the expert explained today, many people still believe that the use of mobile phones can cause cancer, which is not scientific.

“Cell phones do not cause malignant tumors of the brain and other organs and systems in children. Essentially, such cancers do not depend on environmental factors, because they are so-called fetal tumors, which have completely different developmental causes,” he emphasized.
