Predisposing Risk Factors To Cancerous Tumors
As a means of general admonishment, the National Cancer Institute lists a number of predisposing risk factors for cancer. Among the list includes non-controllable and controllable factors such as:
- Exposure to certain chemicals such as asbestos
- Smoking and tobacco use
- Carcinogenic contaminants from alcohol
- Certain artificial sweeteners
- Certain associations with cell phone use
- Genetics (family history)
Note, that among these other factors, the National Cancer Institute lists “Cellphones and Cancer Risk” that discusses the common reasons for concern of the connections between cell phone use and cancer. Some researchers have pinpointed a question that may help connect the dots as to whether cell phones cause cancer.
Where Do You Keep Your Cell Phone?
In this article via health news site Mercola.com a story is told of a woman who found a cancerous tumor in her breast after having had no other predisposing risk factors for cancer than cellphone use. The woman was said to have developed multi-focal breast cancer directly beneath the area of her breast. This was said to be the precise area where she stored her cell phone (tucked away in her bra).
Brain Tumors & Cancer of The Salivary Glands
Dr. Timothy J. Moynihan in an article for the Mayo Clinic reports that while there is no consensus agreement surrounding the controversy of whether or not cell phones cause tumors, there have been studies documenting a link between cancer of salivary glands and cell phone use. In addition, the article sites a study that associates heavy cell phone use with a specific type of brain tumor called glioma.
