As new evidence links mobile phones to a greater risk of tumours, could using one cost your child their life?

Cancer victim convinced mobile phone gave him disease

It gave me cancer, says dad

Angry Andrew Heath is convinced his mobile phone gave him cancer after using it up to six hours a day.

Andrew, 43, had to have the entire left side of his mouth rebuilt in five operations after developing a rare cancerous tumour in his jaw.

"Nothing but my phone could have caused this," said Andrew last night. "No one seems to want to admit they are dangerous and people should be warned about the risks."

He spoke out as a major new study, funded by the World Health Organisation, is about to be published linking mobiles with four different types of tumour.

As new evidence links mobile phones to a greater risk of tumours, could using one cost your child their life?

By Tessa Thomas

Last updated at 8:31 AM on 03rd November 2009

Mobile phones, just how did we live without them? At about 80 million, there are now more mobiles than people in the UK. But since the Nineties, when their use became more widespread, there have been nagging doubts about their safety.

For many people these were resolved two years ago with a report from the Mobile Telecommunications and Health Research Programme.

The programme, jointly funded by the Government and the industry, concluded that mobile phones, base stations and masts 'have not been found to be associated with any biological or adverse health effects'.

However, according to a decade-long study, due out in the coming weeks, people who used mobiles for a decade or more had a 'significantly increased risk' of developing some types of brain tumours.

The Dr. Oz Show posted an article but not the video about cell phones and brain cancer because they plan to air the story again due to the widespread interest in this issue. The story is based on a meta-analysis that Dr. Myung (and his colleagues) conducted with assistance from members of our Center while he was a visiting scholar with us. Fortunately, the show can be viewed on YouTube.

Purpose Case-control studies have reported inconsistent findings regarding the association between mobile phone use and tumor risk. We investigated these associations using a meta-analysis.

Methods We searched MEDLINE (PubMed), EMBASE, and the Cochrane Library in August 2008. Two evaluators independently reviewed and selected articles based on predetermined selection criteria.

Results Of 465 articles meeting our initial criteria, 23 case-control studies, which involved 37,916 participants (12,344 patient cases and 25,572 controls), were included in the final analyses. Compared with never or rarely having used a mobile phone, the odds ratio for overall use was 0.98 for malignant and benign tumors (95% CI, 0.89 to 1.07) in a random-effects meta-analysis of all 23 studies. However, a significant positive association (harmful effect) was observed in a random-effects meta-analysis of eight studies using blinding, whereas a significant negative association (protective effect) was observed in a fixed-effects meta-analysis of 15 studies not using blinding. Mobile phone use of 10 years or longer was associated with a risk of tumors in 13 studies reporting this association (odds ratio = 1.18; 95% CI, 1.04 to 1.34). Further, these findings were also observed in the subgroup analyses by methodologic quality of study. Blinding and methodologic quality of study were strongly associated with the research group.

Conclusion The current study found that there is possible evidence linking mobile phone use to an increased risk of tumors from a meta-analysis of low-biased case-control studies. Prospective cohort studies providing a higher level of evidence are needed.
