    1377: Chinese Put Cancer of the Parotid Gland on Center Stage

    From Louis Slesin, Microwave News:

    Chinese researchers in Beijing are seeing some of the
    highest rates of cancer ever reported in any cell phone
    study. They have found that long-term, heavy users have
    rates of malignant parotid gland tumors that are seven to
    13 times higher than might otherwise be expected.

    The raw data –that is, before being adjusted for other possible
    risk factors like sex, age, income, smoking status and the like–
    point to cancer risks that are elevated 10-fold, 20-fold,
    and even 30-fold, depending on the type of tumor and
    how heavy cell phone use is defined.
