Sixty Minutes report on cell phones and brain tumors

Recently 60 Minutes featured a report on the widespread use of cell phones and its possible connection with brain tumor. An international team of doctors, including two of Australia’s finest surgeons, released their latest, comprehensive research. Dr. Vini Khurana, a Canberra neurosurgeon, talks about studies that showed a doubling of risk of brain tumor for long-term use of mobile phones over 10 years, and expressed his opinion that it may be a conservative estimate. Another prominent neurosurgeon who worked on the report, Dr. Charlie Teo, is convinced that the increased number of brain tumor cases he sees in his patients is related to their use of the mobile phone. The segment includes footage of Dr. Teo performing surgery on one such case.
