All cell phone users are going to die

We’ve heard the pros and cons before, but a new Australian study claims cell phones could be worse for your health than smoking or asbestos.

It’s the issue that won’t go away. Are cell phones detrimental to your health? Will the electromagnetic radiation cause brain tumors? Studies have said yes, studies have said no.

Now a new paper from a staff specialist neurosurgeon at the Canberra Hospital and associate professor of neurosurgery with Australian National University Medical School, Vini G. Khurana, entitled Mobile Phones and Brain Tumors – A Public Health Concern, looks at the results of previous reportage in both the academic and popular press.

Khurana’s warning is quite dire:

“It is anticipated that this danger has far broader public health ramifications than asbestos and smoking, and directly concerns all of us, particularly the younger generation, including very young children.”

The latency time, he believes, “may be in the order of 10-20 years.” He feels that “the link between mobile phones and brain tumours should no longer be regarded as a myth. Individual and class action lawsuits have been filed in the USA, and at least one has already been successfully prosecuted, regarding the cell phone-brain tumour link.”

However, it’s worth noting that many studies have yet to establish a link between the use of cell phones and cancer.

I keep my phone in my right pocket. I've noticed a tingling feeling in my testicles when it rings and some penile swelling. Is this bad?
