Posted April 1, 2008 –  Cell phone use is now linked to brain cancer, according to a new study.  But, that fact may not be enough to get people to stop using their mobile technology.

According to one of the world’s top neurosurgeons, Doctor Vini Khurana, mobile phones could kill far more people than smoking or asbestos.

The study shows that using handsets for 10 years or more can double the risk of brain cancer.

In fact, both French and German health officials have warned against the dangers of cell-phone use for years, especially for children.

As with most things, only time will tell.

The author of the study has called on the government and the mobile phone industry to take immediate steps to reduce exposure to their radiation.

This study by Dr. Kharana is being peer reviewed to verify the claims.
