Australian researcher speaks in The Conversation and dismisses alarmist claims about health effects from mobile phone use

A new study reported in The Conversation says that there is no increase in brain cancer across 29 years of mobile phone use in Australia. Professor Simon Chapman, Emeritus Professor in Public Health, University of Sydney, dismissed recent claims by US scientist Devra Davis that Australians faced an increase in brain cancer because of the widespread use of mobile telecommunications in the community. Prof Chapman said: We have had mobiles in Australia since 1987. Some 90 per cent of the population use them today and many of these have been used for a lot longer than 20 years. But we are seeing no rise in the incidence of brain cancer against the background rate.
