Hardell analysis of CEFALO child/mobile study: results not reassuring
Sweden Created: 22 Dec 2011
Professor Lennart Hardell's latest blog post presents a new paper from the Hardell group where they analyse the CEFALO study on children's mobile use and brain cancer risk. They do not agree that the results are "reassuring" as the CEFALO press release from the Karolinska Institute stated.

Childhood brain tumour risk and its association with wireless phones: a commentary
Abstract:
Case-control studies on adults point to an increased risk of brain tumours (glioma and acoustic neuroma) associated with the long-term use of mobile phones. Recently, the first study on mobile phone use and the risk of brain tumours in children and adolescents, CEFALO, was published. It has been claimed that this relatively small study yielded reassuring results of no increased risk. We do not agree. We consider that the data contain several indications of increased risk, despite low exposure, short latency period, and limitations in the study design, analyses and interpretation. The information certainly cannot be used as reassuring evidence against an association, for reasons that we discuss in this commentary.
