Australian Women Curb Cell Phone Use Over Cancer Fears

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Australian women are cutting their cell phone use over cancer fears. Following a World Health Organization (WHO) warning about cell phone use and brain tumors, Australian women are apparently curbing their cell use at a rate of 25%, said The Daily Telegraph.

This summer, WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified cell phone radiation as possibly carcinogenic to humans.

The Biggest Health Check, an online Australian survey of over 30,000 women, also revealed that an additional 21% of those answering the survey were seeking to cut their future cell phone use, said The Daily Telegraph.

University of Sydney oncologist Bruce Armstrong also believes that the devices are linked to brain tumors and has urged women to limit device use to texting or to rely on landlines. “The fact that women are either cutting down on their mobile phone use or planning to cut down on their mobile phone use is quite consistent with that advice,” Professor Armstrong said. “It just indicates that people are seeing this as a risk,” he added, reported The Daily Telegraph.

The survey, which was conducted by Women’s Health and Prevention in collaboration with the television show, Sunrise, and with Priceline stores, was released exclusively to The Sunday Telegraph, said The Daily Telegraph. Survey responses revealed that women seeking to improve their health and lifestyles sought to decrease, among other things, their cell phone use, especially after learning of the recent research.

An increasing number of studies are pointing to a possible link between cell phones and cancer. For example, recently esearch out of Finland revealed that the electromagnetic field emitted by Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) cell phones suppresses glucose metabolism in the human brain. GSM is the world’s most popular cell phone technology and is used by about 80 percent of the world; glucose metabolism is a marker of brain activity, explained NewsInferno.

Earlier this year, researchers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) published a study that revealed that about 50 minutes of cell phone use was linked to increased brain glucose metabolism in the brain region nearest the phone antenna. That study was one of the first, and, certainly, the most prominent, to offer science linking cell phones to brain metabolism reactions.
