Brain Cancer Risks of Mobile Phones for Real
Science has confirmed that the trusty mobile gadget - which now comes as a smartphone or feature phone - emits radiation, ramping up fears that humans may indeed develop brain cancer from excessive use of the ubiquitous device.
In May 2011, the World Health Organisation (WHO) listed cell phones as likely contributors to brain cancer, specifically glioma and acoustic neuroma brain conditions.
Thirty-one scientists working for the international health agency concluded on a report that personal exposure to mobile phones could be "possibly carcinogenic to humans." The WHO report said that mobile phones generate x-ray like radiation that is comparable to the rays emitted by microwave ovens. "What microwave radiation does in most simplistic terms is similar to what happens to food in microwaves, essentially cooking the brain," the report said as quoted by CNN in a news article that the network ran last year.
