After a report in the Canberra Times a few weeks ago on local research by Canberra neurosurgeon Vini Khurana on the health effects of mobile phones, the following two comments were posted on the CT website:

6 years since the 1st brain tumour op. and 6 months since the 2nd. Yep right front temporal lobe right beside where I used to hold the mobile. During both stays in hospital I asked the nurses anecdotally if they had noticed any changes to the patients, ALL said the patients were getting younger and all nurses point to heads beside ears and hips while saying tumours are getting more specific. Temporal lobes cos that where we hold the phone and around hips cos that where men keep their phone.. on their belt or in their trouser pocket.

As one of the people who used mobile phones extensively for many years, I found out late last year that I had a brain tumour – same side of the head that I used the mobile phone….I have now made a full recovery thanks to Vini Khurana’s expertise. Canberra is lucky to have him and I am not about to wait 10 to 20 years to see which side of the debate is right. I am taking precautions now – no more mobile phones to my head….I applaud Vini for trying to give all of us fair warning about the possibilities of links between mobile telephony and brain tumours. Taking that advice is certainly less harmful than the surgery and recovery process.
Any RA users with similar or related experiences?
