    Does Cell Phone Radiation Causes Cancer?

    Does mobile phone radiation cause cancer?  Cell phones are known to emit radiofrequency energy. Radiofrequency energy is a form of electromagnetic radiation. Tissues in our bodies have been known to absorb electromagnetic radiations which are classified in the category of carcinogenic hazards. Question is:  do mobile phone radiation causes cancer? Do we have any documented case of a person suffering from cancer that has been caused by cell phones?

    Only answer to this question is YES. So, we should take care when we are using the mobile phones.

    All the papers and media like to claim that they do cause cancer as does the guy who answered before me, but a quick visit to the cancer research website will tell you that the largest study on the topic was carried out on 420,000 people and the results did not show any increased risk of brain tumour or any other type of cancer.

    In 20 years, numbers of mobile phones has gone up from 0 in to the millions yet the number of cancer sufferers has not increased at all. I think that says it all.

    A friend was involved in a study on mobile phone radiation in mice that had genetic predisposition to tumours. All mice ended up with tumours but mice in control group (no radiation exposure) had a lower incidence at young age than study group. Also, I've seen surgeons talking on tv about huge increase in head tumours in areas people would hold phones. It has technically not been proven YET, but don't forget until the late 70's smoking was recommended by some doctors as a way to relieve stress to cancer patients.

    That’s correct - cell phones do increase risks of cancer. If you check at World Health Organization’s category of carcinogenic hazard, you will find cell phones/mobile phones in the same category as lead, engine exhaust and chloroform. A team of 31 scientists from 14 countries, including the United States, found evidence of increased glioma and acoustic neuroma brain cancer from mobile phone users.
