Mobile Phone Epidemiology Review - ACRBR

The Australian Centre for Radiofrequency Bioeffects Research (ACRBR) has published a review of existing epidemiological research on possible links between mobile phone use and brain tumours.

The review has been published in the Journal of Australasian College of Physical Scientists and Engineers in Medicine. The authors conclude:

'...Although there have been individual reports of associations between MP-use and tumours, this research is not consistent and on balance does not provide evidence of an association. There are reports of small associations between MP-use ipsilateral to the tumour for greater than 10 years, for both acoustic neuroma and glioma, but the present paper argues that these are especially prone to confounding by recall bias. The reported associations are in need of replication with methods designed to minimise such bias before they can be treated as more than suggestive.
