The research team of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of the World Health Organization (WHO) has published the results of twenty years of scientific research. According to this, daily use of a mobile phone does not increase the risk of cancer.
Published in 2011 by British Cancer Research exploratory studywhich has seen a 39 percent increase in the number of brain tumors in the previous 20 years. The International Agency for Research on Cancer claimed at the time that one of the reasons for the increase may be mobile phone use. At the time, they had no idea what the outcome of twenty years of searching would be. The study began in 1996 in the United Kingdom, and included eight hundred thousand women between the ages of fifty and eighty. Oxford University has been collecting data from participants for twenty years. Women first responded to a questionnaire in 2001 and then in 2011 about cell phone usage habits. Of the eight hundred thousand women in the first round, 3,300 were subsequently diagnosed with a brain tumor, but how long and how often they used the cell phone did not play a role in the disease.
Regarding the IARC research, the German Neurological Society considers that radiation from phones is not strong enough to damage genetic material in the nucleus and cause cancer. Moreover, the radiation from cell phones is so weak that it cannot even increase the body temperature of its user, writes MTI.
According to the study authors, the radiation of the latest generation of phones is less than that, so even though we use more of our phones today (seven to ten hours of use per week were intense in research) even ten to twenty years ago, the rate of radiation has not increased Rather the same (low).
