BCA Investigating Lawsuits Linking Brain Cancer to Cell Phone Usage
Brent Coon and Associates is now actively investing Cell Phone Lawsuits after new studies have linked cell phone usage to an increased risk of cancer. A study in France is said to confirm that cell phone usage increases the chances of developing brain cancer. Specifically heavy cell phone usage can lead to tumors like Meningiomas and gliomas. The study found that heavy cell phone usage can increase the risk of cancer up to nearly 190%. After this and other studies have been released there have already been Cell Phone Cancer Lawsuits filed all over the country. There have already been evidentiary hearings conducted regarding Cell phone cancer litigation earlier this year. These plaintiffs are alleging that cell phone companies knew of the increased risk of brain cancer from phone use but hid this facts from consumers. Despite the fact that Cell Phone cancer lawsuits have been increasing there has been no Cell Phone Cancer class action formed as of yet.
Studies Link Cell Phones and Cancer
In fact, Dr Dariusz Leszczyynski (a doctor from Finland) has called on the World Health Organization to add cell phones on the carcinogen list. There have also been conflicting studies that say Cell Phones do not increase the risk of cancer. There have been hundreds of studies on this topic over a number of years. The data that links cell phones to cancer has to be collected over a long period of time. Cell phone do emit a radio frequency energy which is absorbed into the tissue closest to where the phone is held. There have also been studies which may ultimately link cell phone use to other fatal cancers including breast cancer. Some of more common types of cancer that may be caused by cell phone usage include: Glioma, Meningioma, Acoustic Neuroma, Anaplastic Astrocytoma and Parotid Gland Tumor (PGT). Plaintiffs argue that there is not enough warning to consumers that cell phones may cause fatal cancers.
