    #634: Microwave News on latest cell phone research

    From Louis Slesin:

    Dear Colleagues:

    An international team of researchers has found new evidence that long-term
    use of a mobile phone may lead to the development of a brain tumor on the
    side of the head the phone is used.

    In a study which will appear in an upcoming issue of the International
    Journal of Cancer, epidemiologists from five European countries report a
    nearly 40% increase in gliomas, a type of brain tumor, among those who had
    used a cell phone for ten or more years. The increase is statistically
    significant. In addition, there was a trend showing that the brain tumor
    risk increased with years of use.

    Read our complete report. It’s posted on the Microwave News Web site:
