Also their have been repports of people having less cancer in high radiotion areas due to high radon concentration.

How can you get less cancer? That doesn't make sense?

It doesn't. There have been some studies telling that, but I don't think any logical explanation exists. Most probably just flawed research.

Less cancer? Less people get cancer, thats what i meant. And why not? If your body gets used to small doses of DNA repair, by radiation, it might cope better with endless replications in cells that also need DNA repair. And im Not going to argue if certain studies were false or not, otherwise we can throw everything overboard, theres just no certainty when it comes to small doses of radiation, you better ditch your sellphone if youre afraid of that, way easier then clearing out other background radiation

cell phone radiation is completely different to nuclear radiation.

Rationalizing a situation with what you think is common sense only breeds misinformation.

Our cells run DNA repair mechanisms all the time, it's a part of cell reproduction. Errors occur all the time during DNA duplication, but those cells are able to catch ~90%+ of the errors. The stuff that isn't caught has a high probability of happening in an area of DNA that is not used (junk DNA). Increasing radiation increases DNA damage with either would be copied verbatim into more and more cells or increases the errors to be corrected. This increases the amount of errors that each has a chance to affect a "useful" or working part of the DNA.

First of all both sellphone and gamma radiaton are electromagnetic, and recent studies have been able to confirm high usage to brain tumors ( well offcourse thats what our national news tells me, but if its correct or not, dont know.)

Secondly dna dammage by replication does not happen all time, the percentage would be more like 99,999%, which is a lot less then 90%. Above that, dna dammage occurs spontaniously from all sorts of sources, from oxidatives to uv radiation, forming thymidine dimers etc.
That said i dont know what possible explenations might be, maybe the one i gave isnt. But this seems to be going a little off topic, all i was trying to say was if youre scared to lose some years of your life, their are other things to wory about. There is no need to start a panic over this.

I know of zero recent studies (or any studies at all for that matter) that have ever confirmed a causal relationship between cell phone radiation and brain tumours. If you're referring to the WHO report, that absolutely did not confirm a causal relationship; it simply stated that there was too much contrary evidence to disprove a relationship.

The study im referring to has excluded chance from the equation, p < 0,05, meaning their is statistical significance, which means theirs less than 5% chance to make a type 1 mistake, for this study that is, so it still might be luck, maybe not.
I would look it up myself, since it might be intresting, as i am not 100 %, even though they did state it like this. But right now studying is at hand

Mountain of problems still remains before Fukushima plant brought under control
