"HEALTH WARNING CALL FOR MOBILE PHONES

A leading environmentalist has urged the Government to force manufacturers to carry a health warning on all mobile phones following a devastating report. Downpatrick-based Walter Graham (below) [head-shot included] made the demand after researchers found new evidence that long-term use can lead to the development of a brain tumour on the side of the user's head. Epidemiologists from five European countries found a 40pc increase in gliomas - a type of brain tumour - among those who had used a mobile for 10 years or more. There was also a clear trend showing brain tumour risk increased with years of use. The study will appear in the upcoming issue of the International Journal of Cancer. Mr Graham said: "A significant increase would have been 10pc. "But 40pc is devastating It's as dramatic as it gets and a giant wake-up call." He added: "The big companies should now be ordered to carry a warning on the packaging of all mobile phones that you have a 40pc chance of getting a brain tumour. "And it should be spelt out in big letters - just like on cigarette packets - so that when people purchase one they know they could be seriously damaging their health." Mr Graham and other campaigners from Ireland the Britain met World Health Organisation officials in Geneva last month to highlight growing concerns over mobile phones. They urged a ban on their sale to under-eights in order to protect children from the harmful side effects of radiation.
