Brain and Eye Tumors From Cell Phone Use on the Rise
Dr. George Carlo
Monday, January 16, 2006
Last year there were 30,000 cases of brain and eye tumors reported as a direct result of cell phone use. 2006 will see about 50-75,000 new cases of brain and eye tumors and estimates are that by 2010 there will be 300,000 to 500,000 cases of tumors. These numbers are based on an adult averaging 500 minutes per month. Adults do not use their phones as much as children ages 12-17 whose brain tissues are still developing and use an average of 1,000 minutes per month now. These numbers come from Dr. George Carlo who headed the wireless industry research team in the early 90`s and discovered definitively that cell phone use does cause cancer. The cell industry distanced themselves from Dr. Carlo`s research (they paid for it-$28 million dollars) when the results came in.
Dr. Carlo authored a book called Cell phones-Invisible Hazards of the Wireless Age in the mid 90`s. He recently founded the non-profit organization Safe Wireless Initiative to bring this information to the public.
