Given the low number of cases, Mike O'Carroll <mikeoc...@btinternet.comsuggested I remove the mention of quintupling of the risk. 
 the 2009 Hardell-Carlberg study reported a consistent association between use of mobile or cordless phones and astrocytoma grade I-IV and acoustic neuroma. The authors  ''found an especially high risk for persons that started use of mobile or cordless phones before the age of 20 years, although based on low numbers ".

Epidemiological evidence for an association between use of wireless phones and tumor diseases.

Abstract

During recent years there has been increasing public concern on potential cancer risks from microwave emissions from wireless phones. We evaluated the scientific evidence for long-term mobile phone use and the association with certain tumors in case-control studies, mostly from the Hardell group in Sweden and the Interphone study group. Regarding brain tumors the meta-analysis yielded for glioma odds ratio (OR)=1.0, 95% confidence interval (CI)=0.9-1.1. OR increased to 1.3, 95% CI=1.1-1.6 with 10 year latency period, with highest risk for ipsilateral exposure (same side as the tumor localisation), OR=1.9, 95% CI=1.4-2.4, lower for contralateral exposure (opposite side) OR=1.2, 95% CI=0.9-1.7. Regarding acoustic neuroma OR=1.0, 95% CI=0.8-1.1 was calculated increasing to OR=1.3, 95% CI=0.97-1.9 with 10 year latency period. For ipsilateral exposure OR=1.6, 95% CI=1.1-2.4, and for contralateral exposure OR=1.2, 95% CI=0.8-1.9 were found. Regarding meningioma no consistent pattern of an increased risk was found. Concerning age, highest risk was found in the age group <20 years at time of first use of wireless phones in the studies from the Hardell group. For salivary gland tumors, non-Hodgkin lymphoma and testicular cancer no consistent pattern of an association with use of wireless phones was found. One study on uveal melanoma yielded for probable/certain mobile phone use OR=4.2, 95% CI=1.2-14.5. One study on intratemporal facial nerve tumor was not possible to evaluate due to methodological shortcomings. In summary our review yielded a consistent pattern of an increased risk for glioma and acoustic neuroma after >10 year mobile phone use. We conclude that current standard for exposure to microwaves during mobile phone use is not safe for long-term exposure and needs to be revised.

PLEASE NOTE THE RATHER WORRYING FINDINGS IN A SWEDISH REPORT

Smart meter rebuttal update

 

Please note that we corrected today the David O. Carpenter smart meter rebuttal endorsed by 50+ experts last summer.

 

It now states:

Children and youths are especially vulnerable (2). For example, beginning regular use of a cellphone before age 20 is associated with a quintupling of the risk of developing a malignant brain tumor, according toSwedish study published in 2009.

 

and we added this footnote to clear up the misunderstanding:

(2) On Nov. 19 2012, we struck from this letter an error propagated in the media claiming that ''the U.K.’s Office of National Statistics found a 50 percent increase in frontal and temporal lobe tumors in children between 1999 and 2009.''

 

Thanks to Mike O'Carroll and Denis Henshaw for pointing out this misinterpretation of a London Daily Mail article.
