Cell Phone Brain Cancer
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.
Cell Phone Cancer Videos
There have been many great videos and documentaries on the risks associated with cell phones and cancer.
Recently Mobilize, a Film about Cell Phone Radiation won the Best Documentary Award, at the California Independent Film Festival. Below is the trailer for this Cell Phone Cancer documentary.
In the file, they detail the long-term health problems of active cell phone use and radiation effects. It also interviews cell phone cancer experts and cell phone industry members and influential politicians.
The film was directed by Kevin Kunze.
Cell Phone Brain Cancer, the Law, the Lawsuits, and BCA
BCA is now investigating Cell Phone lawsuits after prominent studies have tied Cell Phone Usage to Brain Cancer.
Recent studies indicated there are links between cell phone usage and an increased risk of cancer. Cell Phone Cancer lawsuits have already been filed in various courts all around the United States. Brent Coon and Associates is actively investigating lawsuits regarding cancer victims and cell phone usage. In fact, the Cell Phone industry does warn consumers that they should keep cell phones a “half inch” away from their bodies, but this information is buried in the fine print of the user manual. Also, this information is not mentioned at all industry-written parents’ guide to cell phone safety. Plaintiffs are arguing that the cell phone industry may be guilty of a “failure to warn” consumers of the potentially fatal risks.

Cell Phone Cancer Lawsuits
Reportedly there have already been nearly 30 brain tumor lawsuits that have been filed in Washington DC. In August of 2014 a judge in D.C. The Superior Court admitted testimony of 5 expert witnesses that ultimately will testify that “general causation” which means that they will testify that cell phones do increase the risk of brain cancer. The cell phone brain cancer lawsuits will move to the discovery phase. This decision to consolidate these lawsuits leads some believe that a Cell Phone Class Action lawsuit could be possible in the future. BCA is actively monitoring this situation regarding any potential Cell Phone Cancer Class action. Regarding these Cell Phone Lawsuits DC Superior Court Judge Frederick H. Weisberg stated the following “Federal law is the supreme law of the land, but there is no constitutional provision that says federal facts are the supreme facts of the land. Federal law can preempt state law, but it cannot preempt scientific fact. The scientific truth, whatever it may be, lies outside of the FCC’s regulations about what is ‘safe’ or ‘unsafe.’

List of Cancer Types Caused By Cell Phones
There have been recent studies that link cell phone usage to an increased risk of brain cancer. A Finish scientist, Dariusz Leszczynski, recently commented that exposure to mobile radiation for 30 minutes a day for 10 years could cause serious cancer risks. The most common types of cancer which are being linked to cell phone usage include:
- Acoustic Neuroma
- Anaplastic Astrocytoma
- Parotid Gland Tumor (PGT)
The FCC does require testing of all cell phones for radiation. The FCC tests and requires all cell phone models to fall under a “Specific Absorption Rate”. The legal limit for Specific Absorption Rate is 1.6 Kilograms. The question then is this legal limit enough to prevent cell phone cancer. Some assumptions are made that consumers always use phone holders to keep phones away from their skin and reduce risk of radiation, but obviously many users carry around cell phones directly in a pocket. And very few consumers are made aware of the risk of either having a cell phone in a pocket or holding a phone directly to an ear. In fact, a city council in California is trying to pass a local law that would require a sticker notifying consumers of cell phone cancer directly on the phone itself. An example of an SAR level in watts per kilogram is the new iPhone, which carries a 1.18 SAR level when held against one’s head.
Cell Phone Brain Cancer Lawsuits
The discovery phase in the cell phone cancer litigation is scheduled to begin soon. There have been reports of cell phone cancer lawsuits being filed in various courts all over the country. Plaintiffs are arguing that the cell phone industry knew about the possible cancer risk associated with cell phones. There are also arguments that there are not sufficient warnings in the packaging and marketing of cell phones to make consumers aware of the dangers of cell phones. It has been reported that these early cell phone cancer lawsuits will be filed against the manufacturers of the cell phones themselves. Worldwide cell phone sales are in the billions and increasing every single year
