Abstract Various risk factors have been implicated in the pathogenesis of glioblastomas including ionizing radiation. Recent evidence has suggested a possible association between exposure to nonionizing radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) generated from mobile phones and wireless devices to cause malignant transformation of the neuroglial cells, albeit this is widely debated. In this report, we discuss the development...

18 Nov 2019 In July 2019 (updated in September 2019), the French Public Health Agency “Santé Publique France“, together with the Francim cancer registries, the Hospices Civils de Lyon and the Institut National du Cancer, published national estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in metropolitan France between 1990 and 2018. These are based on the...

Source: https://pandora-foundation.eu/2019/03/19/glioblastomas-have-doubled-in-number-in-england-since-mobile-phones-were-introduced-in-1995/ On October 28, 2018, Microwave News published a report on two research teams from UK, in which each had observed a rise in glioblastoma in England between 1995 and 2014. Glioblastomas are the most malignant brain tumours leading to death in nearly 100% of the cases shortly after detection (1). While incidence and location of the...

Microwave News http://microwavenews.com/news-center/gbms-rising-uk Rate of GBM More Than Doubled Between 1995 and 2015 The incidence of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the deadliest type of brain tumor, more than doubled in England between 1995 and 2015, according to a new analysis of national statistics. During that time, the number of cases of GBM rose from 983 to...

Abstract An ecological modelling paper by Chapman and colleagues in Cancer Epidemiology concludes that observed increases in the incidence of brain cancer in Australia are unlikely to be related to mobile phone use [1]. Their conclusion fails to take account of tumor location, and is at variance with a meta-analysis of 11 methodologically stronger studies...

December 5, 2016 Geoffrey Kabat offers a remarkably apt critique of his own writings with his answer to the question, “Do Cell Phones Cause Brain Cancer?”: “The problem with research in this area is not that it is worthless but that all too frequently it is interpreted naively and uncritically and used for partisan rather...
