Cancer expert believe links with mobile phones will be ‘definitively proven’ in next 10 years

A cancer expert believes that links between cancer and mobile phones will become apparent in the next decade

A study by Dr Vini Khurana, a respected cancer expert, suggests that mobile phones could end up killing more people than smoking or asbestos, the Independent on Sunday has reported.

By looking at evidence of long-term mobile phone use, Khurana concluded that using handsets for 10 years or more can double the risk of some brain cancers, which may themselves take a decade to develop.

Help us keep the Ecologist platform going

Since 2012, the Ecologist has been owned and published by a small UK-based charity called the Resurgence Trust. We work hard to support the kind of independent journalism and comment that we know Ecologist readers enjoy but we need your help to keep going. We do all this on a very small budget with a very small editorial team and so joining the Trust or making a donation will show us you value our work and support the platform which is currently offered as a free service.
