Professor of Oncology and Cancer Epidemiology at the University Hospital in Orebro (Sweden)
Con to the question "Are Cell Phones Safe?"
"There is a consistent pattern of increased risk for glioma (a malignant brain tumor) and acoustic neuroma with use of mobile and cordless phones...
Epidemiological evidence shows that radiofrequency should be classified as a human carcinogen. The existing FCC/IEE and ICNIRP public safety limits and reference levels are not adequate to protect public health."
"BioInitiative 2012 Report Issues New Warnings on Wireless and EMF," bioinitiative.org, Jan. 7, 2013
Experts Individuals with MDs; individuals with PhDs or equivalent advanced degrees in fields relevant to the study of cell phones; or government officials with significant involvement in cell phone safety issues. [Note: Experts definition varies by site.]
