  • A recent study revealed a rise in glioblastoma multiforme, an aggressive brain tumor, in England from 1995 to 2015
  • Incidence rates more than doubled from 2.4 to 5 per 100,000 people during the study period, an increase the study authors say cannot be fully explained by random chance or improvement in diagnostic techniques and is “most likely” due to cellphones
  • Two government-funded studies conducted by the National Toxicology Program (NTP) found “clear evidence” that exposure to cellphone radiation led to heart tumors in male rates, along with “some evidence” that it caused brain tumors in rats
  • Experts at Italy’s Ramazzini Institute say radiofrequency (RF) radiation from cellphones should probably be classified as a "probable" human carcinogen rather than a "possible" carcinogen

Since their inception, concerns have been raised that holding these radiation-emitting devices so close to our bodies, for so many hours a day, could cause health problems, including cancer. One of the latest studies to date, conducted in England and involving an analysis of more than 79,000 malignant brain tumors, has only added to the accumulating evidence that cellphones may be carcinogenic.
