Phone Triggering Cancer Still Doubtful

After earlier researchers prove that mobile phones cause brain tumors and various other cancers, other researchers are now even questioning the study and said that final conclusions can yet be drawn from the study. The controversy continues to unfold.

Dr. John Bucher of the National Toxicology Program at the National Institutes of Health recognizes the relationship between cell phone radiation and cancer, but he did not fully agree with the final conclusions of the study which states that radiation is a cause of cancer.

Recommendations offered in previous studies is to reduce the use of mobile phones, keep him away from the body and not give it to the children. "The kids have a structure and configuration of the brain that is more easily accessible and vulnerable radiation," Bucher said as reported by CNN, Wednesday (16/9/2009).

According to Drs. Siegal Sadetzki of Tel Aviv University, concluded at the end of the previous studies have not exactly. "What the study has examined how often cell phone use causes cancer, which part of the brain damaged by radiation, and evidence of tumor in the salivary glands? I do not think there is," said Sadetzki.

But until there is research that really prove the radiation dose that causes cancer, said Sadetzki community must remain vigilant, especially the children. "The problem is not whether we should or should not use the phone, but how to use your phone safely," said Sadetzki.

Mencuatnya back issues of the health hazards of mobile phones makes Dr. Devra Davis, director of the Center for Environmental Oncology at the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute to challenge the U.S. government and other researchers to prove the truth so that people do not fret.

According to Davis, during this study is less a concern other researchers because it requires a very long time, at least two decades. Davis also called for new standards for safe radiation dose for the body as well as more funding for research.

"I do not feel scared, but I was concerned, because the world is changing very rapidly and we must be able to keep up with knowing what is good and what is bad," said Davis.
