Cell Phone Use Linked to Brain Tumour

The Italian Supreme Court recently upheld a ruling that connected heavy cellular use to a brain tumour.  In this case a business executive was using his cell phone for 5 to 6 hours per day for 12 years.  He usually held the phone in his left hand as he would take notes with his right hand. 

The business executive had developed a tumour that affected his cranial nerve.  The tumour was not cancerous.   The court found that the business executive’s use was different from normal, non-professional use of a cellular telephone.  The court also noted that the research supporting the claim was independent and not funded by cellular companies.
