  • Title: Cosmos: cohort study of mobile phone use and health
    Descriptive info: mobiles health.. Many reviews have concluded that there is no convincing evidence to date that mobile phones are harmful to health.. However, the widespread use of mobile phones is a relatively recent phenomenon and it is possible that adverse health effects could emerge after years of prolonged use.. Evidence to date suggests that short term (less than ten years) exposure to mobile phone emissions is not associated with an increase in brain and nervous system cancers.. However, regarding longer term use, the evidence base necessary to allow us to make firm judgments has not yet been accumulated.. There are still significant uncertainties that can only be resolved by monitoring the health of a large cohort of phone users over a long period of time.. IARC announcement.. In May 2011 the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which is part of the World Health Organisation, announced in a.. press release (1).. that it had classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B).. The IARC Working Group of 31 scientists reviewed the scientific literature and concluded that there was limited evidence of carcinogenicity among users of wireless telephones for glioma and acoustic neuroma, but inadequate evidence to draw conclusions for other types of cancers.. IARC concluded that a close watch should be kept for a link between mobile phones and cancer risk, and that it is important that additional research be conducted into the long-term, heavy use of mobile phones.. The Current Research Agenda.. In 2010, the World Health Organization (WHO) published a new.. research agenda for radiofrequency (RF) fields (2).. This agenda sets out the priorities for health effects research relating to RF exposures, which include the use of mobile phones.. In terms of epidemiological research, the WHO agenda identifies the COSMOS study as one of the most important studies currently ongoing in this field, and the study continues to be classified as high priority in order to evaluate potential long-term risks  ...   Health Organization, and The Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks (SCENIHR), which was established in 2004 by the European Commission.. In relation the mobile phones and tumour risk, the report by.. ICNIRP (6).. concluded that studies published to date do not demonstrate an increased risk within approximately ten years of use for any tumor of the brain or any other head tumor.. However, the Commission notes that whilst the available data do not suggest a causal association between mobile phone use and fast-growing tumors (such as malignant glioma), the observation period for slow-growing tumors (such as meningioma and acoustic neuroma) has been too short for the absence of associations reported so far to be considered conclusive.. The report by.. SCENHIR (7).. concluded "that exposure to RF fields is unlikely to lead to an increase in cancer in humans.. However, as the widespread duration of exposure of humans to RF fields from mobile phones is shorter than the induction time of some cancers, further studies are required to identify whether considerably longer-term (well beyond ten years) human exposure to such phones might pose some cancer risk..
