UNLABELLED The carcinogenic effect of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields in humans remains controversial. [] Key MethodMETHODS CERENAT is a multicenter case-control study carried out in four areas in France in 2004-2006. Data about mobile phone use were collected through a detailed questionnaire delivered in a face-to-face manner. Conditional logistic regression for matched sets was used to estimate adjusted ORs and 95% CIs.
Association between mobile phones use with malignant brain tumor (GLIOMA): Systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
The results of the current study did not confirm the assumption that the increased risk of Glioma malignant brain tumor is associated with the use of mobile phones, and instead confirmed that exposure to the electromagnetic non-ionizing waves is inevitable.

Wireless phone use and adult meningioma risk: a systematic review and Meta-analysis
TLDR
This meta-analysis suggested a relationship between decreased meningioma risk and wireless phone use, however, the findings need further validation.
Mobile phone use and risk for intracranial tumors and salivary gland tumors - A meta-analysis.
TLDR
The hypothesis that long-term use of mobile phone increases risk of intracranial tumors, especially in the case of ipsilateral exposure, is supported, although further studies are needed to confirm this relationship.
Mobile phone radiation causes brain tumors and should be classified as a probable human carcinogen (2A) (review).
TLDR
The CERENAT finding of increased risk of glioma is consistent with studies that evaluated use of mobile phones for a decade or longer and corroborate those that have shown a risk of meningioma from mobile phone use.

Evaluation of Mobile Phone and Cordless Phone Use and Glioma Risk Using the Bradford Hill Viewpoints from 1965 on Association or Causation
TLDR
RF radiation should be regarded as a human carcinogen causing glioma, and Bradford Hill's viewpoints from 1965 on association or causation were used onglioma risk and use of mobile or cordless phones.
Brain and Salivary Gland Tumors and Mobile Phone Use: Evaluating the Evidence from Various Epidemiological Study Designs.
TLDR
In conclusion, epidemiological studies do not suggest increased brain or salivary gland tumor risk with MP use, although some uncertainty remains regarding long latency periods (>15 years), rare brain tumor subtypes, and MP usage during childhood.
Mobile phone use and glioma risk: A systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
It is suggested that long-term mobile phone use may be associated with an increased risk of glioma.

Mobile phone use and risk of brain neoplasms and other cancers: prospective study.
TLDR
In this large prospective study of 791,710 middle-aged women, mobile phone use was not associated with increased incidence of glioma, meningioma or non-CNS cancers.
Mobile phones, cordless phones and the risk for brain tumours.
TLDR
The Hardell-group conducted two case control studies on brain tumours including assessment of use of mobile phones and cordless phones and found highest risk for ipsilateral mobile phone use in the >10 year latency group, and a decreasing incidence was found for acoustic neuroma during the same period.
Cellular and cordless telephones and the risk for brain tumours
TLDR
Use of analogue cellular telephones gave an increased risk for brain tumours and exposure to microwaves and the risk was increased for tumours located in the temporal area on the same side of the brain that was used during phone calls; for analogue cellulartelephones the OR was 2.5 (95% CI 1.3–4.9).
Case-control study of the association between malignant brain tumours diagnosed between 2007 and 2009 and mobile and cordless phone use
TLDR
Results confirmed previous results of an association between mobile and cordless phone use and malignant brain tumours and provide support for the hypothesis that RF-EMFs play a role both in the initiation and promotion stages of carcinogenesis.

TLDR
There were suggestions of an increased risk of glioma at the highest exposure levels, but biases and error prevent a causal interpretation, and the possible effects of long-term heavy use of mobile phones require further investigation.
Use of cellular telephones and the risk for brain tumours: A case-control study.
TLDR
An increased risk for brain tumour in the anatomical area close to the use of a cellular telephone should be especially studied in the future.
Use of cellular telephones and brain tumour risk in urban and rural areas
TLDR
In future studies, place of residence should be considered in assessment of exposure to microwaves from cellular telephones, although the results in this study must be interpreted with caution due to low numbers in some of the calculations.
Use of mobile phones and cordless phones is associated with increased risk for glioma and acoustic neuroma.
Long-term use of cellular phones and brain tumours: increased risk associated with use for ⩾10 years
TLDR
Results from present studies on use of mobile phones for ⩾10 years give a consistent pattern of increased risk for acoustic neuroma and glioma, the risk is highest for ipsilateral exposure.
Use of mobile phones and risk of brain tumours: update of Danish cohort study
TLDR
There were no increased risks of tumours of the central nervous system among Danish mobile phone subscribers in this update of a large nationwide cohort study of mobile phone use, providing little evidence for a causal association.
