Breast Cancer Incidence

According to Cancer Research UK there are now record numbers of women under 50 being diagnosed with breast cancer. In Australia one in eight women will be diagnosed with the disease.
Need to Know Information
It’s important to realize that as long as your mobile phone is on, it emits radiation intermittently, even when you are not actually making a call. So wearing a mobile phone against your body for 15 hours a day is continually radiating that area of your body.
Phone manufacturer instructions include usage conditions that require the user often to maintain a minimum distance between the phone and the body of at least 5-10mm at all times (depending on phone brand & radiation output levels etc).
The Case of Donna Jayes
Donna Jayes kept her cellphone in her bra and against her breast for 10 years. Her oncologists concluded her cancer was likely caused by her cellphone after dots drawn on her breast where the three cancer points had developed were found to perfectly match the outline of the shape of her cellphone where she had been keeping it tucked against her skin.
Specialist Opinion on Cellphones and Breast Cancer
While there are many environmental factors to consider, there are number of clinicians observing clinical evidence that has led them to believe that storing a cell phone in the bra, can in some instances lead to breast cancer.
Dr John West MD – oncologist and surgical director of Breastlink and co-founder of BeAware foundation
We have clinical evidence that particularly young women who use their cell phone for prolonged periods of time develop a very unusual form of cancer. What’s so impressive about this is that these cancers occur right underneath the skin where the cellphone was in contact with the breast. We see multiple (both invasive and non-invasive) cancers and the pattern and distribution of the cancer is extremely unusual and especially at such a very young age. The cancers are roughly the same distribution as the cellphone and appear in the same area where the cellphone was placed in direct contact with the breast.
The Case of Tiffany Frantz
Tiffany Frantz kept her cellphone in her bra for 4 years. At the very young age of 21, and with no other identifiable risk factors, she contracted breast cancer and underwent a left breast mastectomy. The cancerous tumours lined up with the location of the cellphone that she had kept in her bra.
