INTERPHONE Study on Cell Phone Brain Cancer – A Bad Call For Cell Phone Users

Initial results from the INTERPHONE study published in 2010 did not show a clear association between mobile phone use and brain tumors. However, a subsequent analysis of the data, which included a more detailed evaluation of the participant’s mobile phone use and additional cases and controls, was published in 2014. This analysis found a slight increase in the risk of glioma, a type of brain tumor, among the heaviest users of mobile phones (those with more than 1,640 hours of lifetime use). While the increase was not statistically significant at that time, since then, several peer-reviewed studies have found a statistically significant association between mobile phone use and glioma brain tumors. It is important to recognize that the evidence for an association between mobile phone use and brain tumors continues to accumulate, and it is essential to take precautionary measures to protect our children’s health. We should continue to monitor and evaluate the research in this area as it evolves and err on the side of caution when it comes to our children’s well-being.

 

 

The INTERPHONE study was a multinational research effort that sought to examine the potential link between cell phone use and brain tumors. The study included more than 14,000 participants from 13 countries and collected data on the participants’ mobile phone use, such as the type of phone, the frequency and duration of use, and the side of the head on which the phone was used. The initial results of the study were published in 2010 and suggested that there was no clear association between mobile phone use and brain tumors.

However, subsequent analysis of the data, which included a more detailed evaluation of the participants’ mobile phone use and additional cases and controls, revealed a different story. The findings were manipulated and wargamed from the start to downplay the risks associated with cell phone radiation. The study was designed to avoid finding a link between cell phone use and brain tumors, and the wireless industry had significant control over the design of the study. The study was also plagued by a number of flaws, including the exclusion of heavy cell phone users and the reliance on self-reported data.

A 2014 analysis of the INTERPHONE data, which included more cases and controls, found a statistically significant increase in the risk of glioma associated with long-term cell phone use. The reanalysis found that individuals who used cell phones for 1,640 or more hours in their lifetime had a 2.5 times greater risk of developing glioma than those who had never used cell phones. The study also found an increased risk of glioma in individuals who used cell phones predominantly on one side of their head.

These findings highlight the importance of independent, unbiased research into the potential health risks associated with cell phone use. While the findings of the INTERPHONE study were initially downplayed, subsequent studies and the reanalysis of the data suggest that there may be a link between cell phone radiation and brain tumors. As new telecom networks are built and cell phone use continues to grow, it is essential that more research is conducted to fully understand the potential health risks associated with cell phone radiation.

Individuals can take steps to reduce their exposure to cell phone radiation, such as using hands-free devices, keeping cell phones away from the body, and reducing the duration and frequency of use. Despite the mounting evidence, the wireless industry continues to downplay the risks associated with cell phone radiation. It is important for individuals to stay informed and take a precautionary approach to limit their exposure to cell phone radiation.

 

In recent years, there has been growing concern about the potential health risks associated with cell phone radiation. While many studies have been conducted to investigate the potential link between cell phone use and brain tumors, some studies have been criticized for being manipulated or downplaying the risks associated with radiation.

The INTERPHONE study, which was conducted between 2000 and 2004 to examine the potential link between cell phone use and brain tumors. The study initially suggested that there was no clear association between mobile phone use and brain tumors. However, subsequent analysis of the data revealed a different story, indicating an increased risk of glioma associated with long-term cell phone use.

The Ramazzini Institute’s findings, published in the journal Environmental Research, found a similar association between cell phone radiation and cancer in rats. The study revealed that male rats exposed to the radio-frequency radiation emitted by cellphones using GSM networks had a greater chance of developing heart tumors and Schwann cell hyperplasias, which support the peripheral nervous system. The study also observed Schwann cell tumors in human epidemiological studies of tumor incidence in cellphone users and the NTP studies of lab animals.

These findings provide further evidence of the potential risks of cell phone radiation to human health, particularly given the similarity of the results to those of other studies. While further research is needed to fully understand the nature of this association, the findings suggest that a precautionary approach is warranted when it comes to cell phone radiation.

Individuals can reduce their exposure to cell phone radiation by using a headset or speakerphone when making calls, texting instead of making calls, and keeping their cell phone away from their body when not in use. As new telecom networks are built and cell phone use continues to grow, it is essential that more research is conducted to fully understand the potential health risks associated with cell phone radiation. In the meantime, individuals can take steps to reduce their exposure to cell phone radiation and protect their health.

 

The tactics used by the wireless industry to discredit research showing potential harm from cell phone radiation are disturbingly similar to those used by the tobacco industry to cast doubt on the link between smoking and cancer. The industry’s tactics of “war-gaming” the science to downplay the risks associated with cell phone radiation, just as the tobacco industry did with cigarettes, have come to light in recent years.

A leaked memo from Motorola to their PR company, Burson-Marsteller in 1994, detailed how the industry planned to discredit researchers, minimize the findings, and calm the public. They developed a list of “independent” experts to reassure the public that cell phones were safe. The industry also sought to delay or halt research that could potentially show harm, prevent other scientists from replicating studies, or carefully select scientists who would produce favorable results.

One of the main criticisms was that the studies were not conducted at cellular frequencies and were of questionable relevance. However, in reality, many of the studies have been conducted at frequencies relevant to cell phones and other wireless devices. The industry also worked to convince the press and the public, via industry-selected scientists, that any findings showing harm were of marginal importance and with questionable relevance in regards to the question of whether cell phones are safe for humans.

Scientists like Dr. Henry Lai at the University of Washington risk having their careers destroyed by publishing studies about the health hazards of cellphones, cellphone towers, and Wi-Fi. In 1995, Lai published a study on DNA and memory damage in rats exposed to EMR from radar equipment. A whistle-blower leaked an internal Motorola memo about their plan to institute “war games” to get him fired and cut off his grant funding. Although the University of Washington president resisted their request to fire Lai, lack of funding has forced the scientist to discontinue his EMR research.

This memo highlights the industry’s efforts to “war-game” the science and discredits studies linking cell phone radiation to cancer. It illustrates the importance of examining all studies and being vigilant against the possibility of industry influence. It is essential to consider the evidence and not allow industry tactics to obscure the potential risks associated with cell phone radiation.

FAQ:

Q: What is the cell phone industry “Wargame” memo, and how does it relate to the link between cell phone radiation and cancer?

The cell phone industry “Wargame” memo was a 1994 internal memo from Motorola to their public relations company, Burson-Marsteller, outlining a clear strategy to “war-game” the science behind the link between cell phone radiation and DNA damage discovered by researchers Henry Lai and N.P. Singh in the 1990s. The memo reveals how the industry planned tactics to discredit the researchers, minimize the findings, and calm the public.

Q: What were the industry’s three-point plan in the “Wargame” memo?

The industry’s three-point plan was to delay or halt Lai and Singh’s DNA research, prevent other scientists from replicating the study, and convince the press and the public, via industry-selected scientists, that the DNA study results were of marginal importance and with questionable relevance in regards to the question of whether cell phones are safe for humans.

Q: How did the industry downplay the risks associated with cell phone radiation?

The industry sought to delay or halt research that could potentially show harm, prevent other scientists from replicating studies, carefully select scientists who would produce favorable results, and convince the press and the public that any findings showing harm were of marginal importance and with questionable relevance in regards to the question of whether cell phones are safe for humans.
