A Supreme Court in Rome has ruled that a mobile phone is linked to the brain tumour which businessman Innocente Marcolini was diagnosed with. The 60-year-old, who used his mobile phone for up to six hours daily over a span of 12 years, received the courts verdict on Thursday.
The Italian court is understood to have found a link between the man’s tumour and the use of his mobile phone, although some experts have claimed there is no evidence to prove this. It is thought that this ruling could now open the flood-gates for other similar cases according to reports.
Mr. Marcolini has warned The Sun that “Parents need to know their children are at risk of this illness.” He said: “This is significant for very many people. I wanted this problem to become public because many people still do not know the risks.
“I was on the phone, usually the mobile, for at least five or six hours every day at work. I wanted it recognised that there was a link between my illness and the use of mobile and cordless phones.”
Professor Angelo Gino Levis gave evidence for Mr. Marcolini, and he views tumours which are related to radiation could remain hidden for 15 years. He expressed in the same report by The Sun that this explains why “three to five-year studies don’t find them.”
Reportedly, some think mobiles give off radiation that can cause damage to cells and increase the risk of tumours, but a spokesman from Britain’s Health Protection Agency stated that science suggests cancer is not caused by mobile phones.
Some experts have explained that if mobile phone users are concerned for their health, they can use their mobile phones hands-free, including using a headset.
