Results for studies on mobile phone use and the risks of certain brain tumors including [1]:

  • Results of studies on mobile phone use and risk of glioma
  • Results of studies on mobile phone use and risk of meningioma
  • Results of studies on mobile phone use and risk of acoustic neuroma
  • Results of studies on mobile phone use and risk of meningioma
  • Results of studies on mobile phone use and risk of salivary gland tumors

Note: In the above studies results OR indicates odds ratio which is defined as the ratio of the odds of an event occurring in one group to the odds of it occurring in another group, or to a sample-based estimate of that ratio. These groups might be men and women, an experimental group and a control group, or any other dichotomous classification. If the probabilities of the event in each of the groups are p (first group) and q (second group), then the odds ratio is:

To put things more simple if OR > 1 there is linkage/increase-risk, for example if OR=2 than the risk is twofold, if OR=3 the risk is fivefold, etc.

A comprehensive review of the scientific evidence on dosimetry, biological effects, epidemiological observations, and health consequences concerning exposure to high frequency electromagnetic fields (100 kHz to 300 GHz), can be found in recent publication of the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection organization(ICNIRP): Exposure to high frequency electromagnetic fields, biological effects and health consequences (100 kHz-300 GHz).
The publication addresses the current (as of 2009) scientific evidence concerning exposure to high frequency electromagnetic fields (EMF) and the resulting consequences for health.
