Sunday New York Times’ Article to Chronicle Cellphone Brain Research

Friday, April 15th, 2011

Recognizing the growing public concern over the possible link between cell phone EMF emissions and brain disorders, the prestigious New York Times Magazine just released this Sunday’s extensive article entitled “Do Cellphones Cause Brain Cancer?”

An encyclopedic history of cellphone radiation research, the Times’ piece covers the particulars of several studies but also provides an informative discussion of cancer epidemiology and research methodology in general.

You may recognize the recent INTERPHONE study (covered in a recent blog here), but the article discusses many of the complexities and nuances involved in cancer research.

While the New York Times and other media stories report that no single study has yet definitively answered the title’s question, “Do Cellphones Cause Brain Cancer?”, they all point to one recent study (see links in our previous blog): the recent study by Nora Volkow, published in The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) that comes to this conclusion: cellphone radiation does affect brain function and brain metabolism.
