This news is based on the following article: Choi KH, Johyun Ha J, Bae S, et al. Mobile phone use and time trend of brain cancer incidence rate in
Korea. Bioelectromagnetics 2021 ; 42(8) : 629-48. Doi : 10.1002/bem.22373.


Since radiofrequencies were classified as potential carcinogens by IARC in 2011, studies have sought to see whether mobile phone use, which has become widespread in the last few decades, has been accompanied by an increase in the rate of cancers, cerebral especially, listed in national registries. We analyze here the Korean study published in December 2021.
