No link between cancer and mobile


Experts said - after studying 13 thousand mobile phone users over ten years - that their research did not provide a clear relationship between use and cancer.
A study by the International Agency for Research on Cancer of the World Health Organization - is the largest study so far looking into the possibility of a link between mobile phone and brain cancer - the results are inconclusive, although there are references to a possible link between the injury and the use of such devices.
The researchers said that, to reach definitive conclusions to be made a deeper study of the subject.

The director of the International Agency for Research on Cancer Christopher Wilde said that the results do not permit the recognition of risk by using mobile phone at the same time it was premature to say that there is no danger associated with them.
The Wild and the fact that part of the problem in study, which began in 2000 that rates of mobile phone in the period covered was relatively low compared with today.
The study is based also on a group of individuals resort to memory to estimate how much time spent in the use of mobile phones? A method that can cause inaccuracies.


Data from the study of the IAEA that mobile phone users in general are at risk of brain cancer less than people who did not use it at all, but said the 21 scientists conducted the study that this result pointed to problems in the method or inaccurate information from the participants.
The results showed that high cumulative time of the call may increase slightly the risk of infection, but this result is not reliable as well.
The scientists stressed that the need for research over the increased use of mobile phones.
The increased use of mobile phones has grown substantially since their introduction in the early and mid-Tmaniniat the last century. It uses five billion people, mobile phones now in all parts of the world.
The researchers said that the majority of people surveyed do not use mobile phones by today's standards, with an average time of the call cumulative to those involved about a hundred hours at a rate two to two and a half per month, more than 10% of mobile users up to an average 1640 hours over ten years which is equivalent to about half an hour a day.
The researchers stressed that the use of mobile phone at the moment is becoming more widespread and it is not uncommon for young people use mobile phones for an hour or more a day.

Companies concerned

The mobile phone companies and activist groups raised concerns about the possibility that they cause tumors in the brain with anticipation awaiting the results of the study did not reach the research conducted over the years to prove a link.
The study received funding amount of 19.2 million euros (24.4 million dollars), including 5.5 from manufacturing companies.

The Union (GSM), which represents mobile phone companies are international and UK-based The results of the IAEA in line with the huge amount of existing research and the views of many experts that concluded that there is no health risk to the use of mobile phones.
The Forum welcomed the makers of mobile-based study in Australia also supported the need for continued research.

Earlier, European scientists launched the largest ever study on the effects of mobile phone use on long-term health, which aims to track at least a quarter million people in five European countries for up to thirty years.
This is the type of study more accurate. They do not require people to remember their use of mobile phone at a later time, but the relay in real time.
