(NaturalNews) Back in June, singer and songwriter Sheryl Crow told Las Vegas Review-Journal reporter Doug Elfman that she had a brain tumor, confirming suspicions held by some that Crow's failure to remember the lyrics to one of her most famous hit songs at a show earlier in the year was more than just a consequence of growing old. Though benign, her tumor may have been a result of prolonged mobile phone use over the years, Crow admits, once again reviving legitimate concerns about the safety of cell phones.

"I do have the theory that it's possible that it's related to that," said Crow to journalist Katie Couric during a recent interview, inferring that mobile phone radiation may have triggered the growth of her tumor. "I used to spend hours on the old archaic cell phones."

Crow's tumor, which is known as a meningioma, was identified on the side of her head where she talks on her phone the most, which was one of the first indications that the two were potentially linked. Crow also says she noticed that her memory had been increasingly failing her prior to the diagnosis, and that she was having more and more trouble thinking clearly, both factors of which seemed to correlate with her excessive phone use habits.

Though none of her doctors have been willing to confirm or even entertain her suspicions, Crow's own account of her excessive mobile phone use over the years seems to point to the possibility that such activity may have been the cause of her tumor. And this is very serious because, despite being considered benign, meningiomas can still invade surrounding tissues and spread to other organs -- in some cases, meningiomas can actually be fatal.

Famous 'Interphone Study' confirms cell phone use can cause brain tumors

But do Crow's suspicions about cell phone use potentially causing cancer have any scientific validity? Data compiled as part of the comprehensive Interphone Study actually seems to confirm Crow's theory, having revealed that heavy cell phone use significantly increases brain cancer risk. Though the media and the study itself tried to marginalize the significance of the findings, it is clear from the figures that long-term cell phone use can increase the risk of certain forms of cancer by as much as 50 percent (http://www.naturalnews.com/029100_cell_phones_radiation.html).

A presentation given at the 32nd Annual Bioelectromagnetics Society meeting in South Korea back in 2010 claimed that Interphone Study data showed an even high risk of cancer from cell phone use. According to that particular analysis, published risk figures from the study were underestimated by as much as 25 percent (http://electromagnetichealth.org).

"Flaws in the design and problems during conduct of the study led to biased estimates of the risk," says Michael Kundi, Professor of Occupational Health and Epidemiology at the Medical University of Vienna, about the inadequacy of the Interphone Study in exposing true cell phone risk. "We tried to assess the magnitude of this bias and correct the most important risk estimates. It turned out that after correction, the risk from mobile phone use is quite substantial and warrants precautionary activities."
