“If you’re a cell phone user, you’ve no doubt been reading along for several years as we’ve reported various studies addressing the safety of this technology. Some have said that cell phones are safe to use. Some have suggested they might not be. For our part, we’ve urged precaution until more is known. Now a new examination of the available evidence says that was wise advice.

The new study, Mobile Phones and Brain Tumors – A Public Health Concern, was conducted by noted Australian brain surgeon Dr. Vini Gautam Khurana. Dr. Khurana analyzed more than 100 separate studies, both pro and con, on the potential health effects of cellular phone usage and concluded that the electromagnetic radiation (EMR) emitted by cell phones will likely lead to an epidemic of brain cancers within the next decade.

This evidence suggests that cell phone radiation will eventually pose a larger threat to public health than asbestos or smoking.”
