A hug is duct tape for the soul.

 
From The Daily Mail online: This week, research concluded that just half an hour spent on your mobile every day could raise your risk of developing brain cancer by as much as 40 per cent.

the £15 million, decade-long study was carried out on more than 5,000 men and women with brain tumours from 13 different countries, as well as a similar number of healthy people, all of whom were interviewed about their phone habits.

The researchers - scientists from around the globe who worked together for the World Health Organisation's interphone report - found increased risks among those who used their phones the most.

The frequent users were also more likely to suffer a tumour on the same side of their brain to the ear they used for phone calls.

More worrying still, a separate study by an American environmental lobby group put the risk 25 per cent higher, while warning of a 'brain tumour pandemic' in years to come.

Lloyd Morgan, of America's Environmental health trust lobby group, said all the risk levels suggested by the interphone report should be increased significantly. He warned: 'What we have discovered indicates there is going to be one hell of a brain tumour pandemic unless people are warned and encouraged to change current cell phone use.'

Yet, confusingly, UK cancer charities dismissed the group's claims as ' overblown', saying national brain cancer rates had not increased in proportion to 'skyrocketing' phone use.

And Professor Anthony Swerdlow, who led one of the two British research teams involved in the interphone report, insisted: 'i've still seen no convincing evidence that brain cancers are caused by radi o frequencies.'

Scientists fear it could be another decade before we learn who's right. in the meantime, sales of mobile phones continue to soar, with an estimated 40 million
people now fully fledged mobile users, some of them children as young as five.
