Mobile phones: now it's eye cancer
What next - tongue lesions?
Prolonged mobile phone use can make you go blind, a German report claims.
Researchers at Essen University took a group of 118 patients already suffering from uveal melanoma, cancer in the iris or base of the retina of the eye, and investigated their mobile phone use history. They compared the results against a control group of 474 people.
They found that regular mobile phone users were three times more likely to develop cancer of the eye.
However, the doctor who headed the research, Dr Andreas Stang, warned against users rushing off to the optician. In an editorial accompanying the research he urged a cautious response to what was after all a small study, subject to all sorts of variables. The report appears in January's Epidemiology journal. ®
