Cell Phone Study Design Proven to Greatly Underestimate Risk of Brain Tumors

Industry-Funded ‘Interphone’ Brain Cancer-Cell Phone Study Design Proven to Greatly Underestimate Risk of Brain Tumors – Previous Denial of Brain Cancer Risk Now Seen As Unjustified

A Letter to the Editor in the International Journal of Epidemiology (December 17, 2010) by Dr. Lennart Hardell and team at the University Hospital, Örebro, Sweden, called “Re-analysis of risk for glioma in relation to mobile telephone use: comparison with the results of the Interphone international case-control study”, confirms that design flaws in the Interphone study published in May 2010 caused the risk of brain tumors to be underestimated.

The Hardell et al research on brain tumors, published in 2006, showed that the risk of malignant brain cancer from use of a digital cell phone for >10 years increased by 180%, but the Interphone study results published last May only showed a 118% increased risk of brain cancer. This discrepancy has never been fully explained until now, and the risks that were found in the Interphone study were downplayed.
