“Environmental Risk Factors for Cancers of the Brain and Nervous System: The Use of Ecological Data to Generate Hypotheses,” Occupational & Environmental Medicine, May 2013, by Frank de Vocht and coworkers at U.K.'s University of Manchester.

“We show a clear association between national penetration of cellular telecommunications subscriptions and higher incidence of brain and nervous system cancers, with a latency between exposure and clinical onset of at least 11–12 years, but probably more than 20 years.”

Using a new data set covering 2007-2009, Lennart Hardell and his research team have reaffirmed their previous findings that long-term use of a wireless phone leads to higher rates of both malignant brain tumors and acoustic neuromas (AN), but not of meningiomas, a type of benign brain tumor. In general, they report, the longer the use, the greater the risk for AN and malignant brain tumors.

All three new papers are open access. For the malignant brain tumor paper, click here; for the AN...

“The Alteration of Spontaneous Low-Frequency Oscillations Caused by Acute EMF Exposure,” Clinical Neurophysiology, posted online September 6, 2013.

“The results demonstrated the RF-EMF exposure modulated the brain neural activity not only in the closer brain region but also in the remote region and even in the contralateral brain region.” The RF exposure was a 30-minute LTE signal. From Beijing China. See also our report on the Volkow study.

Next Sunday, the New York Times Magazine will feature a long piece titled "Do Cell Phones Cause Brain Cancer?" by Siddhartha Mukherjee (it's already on the Times' Web site). It's a well-written article, as might be expected by his well-received book, Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer. Yet an important part of the...
