  • How often do you use a cell phone? How about your children? Although many dismiss the link

  • between cell phone use and cancer, research has shown that consumers who use mobile devices

  • without headsets face an increased likelihood of developing certain types of brain or salivary

  • gland tumors.

  • Specifically, heavy cell phone use without a head set has been shown to put individuals

  • at an increased risk for

  • Glioma (a malignant form of brain cancer)

  • Acoustic neuroma (a tumor of the nerve that runs from the ear to the brain)

  • Meningioma (a tumor that grows on the layer of tissue that covers the brain and the spine)

  • Tumors of the salivary glands

  • Cell Phone Radiation Lawsuits:

  • As a result of these injuries, plaintiffs have filed a growing number of cell phone

  • radiation lawsuits against cell phone manufacturers. These cases, pending in the Superior Court

  • of Washington, D.C., allege that tumors and brain cancers resulted from cell phone radiation

  • exposure.

  • The cell phone radiation lawsuits allege that cell phone manufacturers failed to warn and

  • protect users from dangerous and hazardous radio frequency emissions, putting consumers

  • at an increased risk for developing brain cancer and other non-cancerous tumors.

  • Timeline of Cell Phone Radiation Studies:

  • These lawsuits rely on cell phone research stemming back from 2002, when a Swedish study

  • led by Dr. Lennart Hardell showed an 80 percent greater risk of developing brain tumors in

  • long-term first-generation cell phone users than those who did not use cell phones.

  • In 2004, the Karolinska Institute of Sweden found that 10 or more years of cell phone

  • use increased the risk of acoustic neuroma on the side of the head where the phone was

  • most often held.

  • In 2005 the British Medical Journal published a study of Swedish rural residents, finding

  • that those who used a cell phone for over three years were more likely to develop brain

  • tumors.

  • In 2008: an expansive Interphone study found that the highest frequency group of cell phone

  • users was twice as likely to develop glioma.

  • In 2011: The World Health Organization reclassified cell phone radiation aspossibly carcinogenic,”

  • placing cell phones in the same category as lead and chloroform.

  • Not all scientists agree and there is some controversy in the medical community over

  • this issue.

  • For example, in July 2011, the first study on cellphone use and risk of brain tumors

  • in children and adolescents conducted by researchers at the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute

  • concluded that there was no link between cell phone use and cancer in children. That study,

  • however, has recently come under significant fire by others in the medical community. In

  • April 2012, scientist from the Environmental Health Trust issued a letter stating the study

  • was flawed, calling itsloppyand noting that the study data actually shows that children

  • who used cell phones had a 115 percent increased risk of brain tumors over those who did not.

  • Conclusion:

  • If you have been a long time cell phone user and developed glioma, acoustic neuroma, meningioma,

  • or a tumor of the salivary gland, you may have a legal claim against the manufacturers

  • of your cell phone. The lawyers at Bernstein Liebhard LLP are heavily involved in these

  • cases and would be happy to provide you with a free case review.
