Court: Cellphone, tumor tied

Italy’s top court has ruled that a businessman developed a benign brain tumor because he held a cellphone to his ear for hours daily for his job and deserves worker’s compensation.

Innocente Marcolini, whose face is partially paralyzed, argued that using his cell and portable phones six hours a day for 12 years while dealing with clients caused the tumor on his trigeminal nerve in his head.

His lawyers presented doctors who testified that excessive cellphone use increases risk of such tumors.

Numerous large scientific studies have failed to find a casual link between cellphones and brain tumors.
