Presumably these stats refer to the US. If you look at them, 30,000
new cases of brain & eye cancer for 2005 going up to a projected 300 -
500,000 by 2010, new cases are rising by about 40% per annum.
And this is ONLY for adults. Carlo says that children aged 12 - 17 use
their cell phones considerably more than the average adult who is on
it for average 500 minutes per month, and for whom the risks are
greater due to their still developing brains and bodies.
So what the h... is happening to children?
The population of the US is around 270 million. This means that if you
ONLY count adult brain and eye tumours, the incidence is rapidly
approaching one in 1000!
Include children and what are you then looking at - one 1 in 700?
In the UK - population 65 million - and you're looking at us hurtling
towards 100,000 new cases per annum total.
Is there any way we can find out how many new cases of eye and brain
tumours per annum have been diagnosed in the UK over the last few
