“Wireless Phone Use in Childhood and Adolescence and Neuroepithelial Brain Tumors: Results from the International MOBI-Kids Study,” Environment International, February 2022.

It “provides no evidence of a causal association between wireless phone use and brain tumors in young people.” However, sources of bias prevent ruling out a small increased risk.

Open access.

MOBI-Kids is the first mobile phone/brain tumor case-control study to take into account ELF EMF exposures —not just RF. ELF dose was estimated with cumulative induced currents at location of tumor.

Project began in 2009; 14 countries participated. More here.
