A much hyped new scientific which the mainstream media has been happy to claim proves that there is no link between cell phones and the risk of developing brain cancer has been described as “deeply flawed” and attacked as having been set up to create that finding in the first place.
The Danish study, which was published last week in the British Medical Journal, claimed to have found “no link between mobile phone use and tumours” despite the increasing claims to the contrary from many scientists all over the world, including the World Health Organization. Now, the study apparently “clearing” cell phones has been called “deeply flawed” by members of the scientific community from all over the world, including countries such as the United Kingdom, Australia, the United States, Sweden, and Austria, who note that faulty science has been used to try to discredit the link.
“From the way it was set up originally, this deeply flawed study was designed to fail to find an increased risk of brain tumours with cell phone use,” says the president of American education and advocacy group the Environmental Health Trust, Dr. Devra Davis. “In order for any study of a relatively rare disease like brain tumours to find a change in risk, millions must be followed for decades.” Davis claims that the Danish study fails to take into account the rapidly altering nature of cell phone use and excludes business people in the 1990s, who were among the heaviest users.
