Aussie brain surgeon warns
A top Australian brain surgeon has dubbed a report into the potentially harmful effects of mobile phones as a wake-up call to users and the telecommunications industry.

Dr Charles Teo, founder of the Centre for Minimally Invasive Neurosurgery at Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney, said he was "pleased" that at last there came conclusive proof that mobile phones caused brain tumours. Dr Teo, said that the report should serve as a 'wake up call' alerting both the public and the mobile phone industry to the link between mobile use and cancer."

A report was released by the World Health Organisation's cancer research wing. It said that radio frequency electromagnetic fields generated by such devices are "possibly carcinogenic to humans" and heavy usage could lead to a possible increased risk of glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer. Dr Teo has spoken out publicly about the dangers of mobile use and said that the IARC's conclusions drew on the "known medical literature" and could not be ignored.
