Mobile threat to ears

Tuesday July 20th, 2010

Regular mobile phone may cause damage to the ears, researchers claimed today.

People who have spent time on a phone over a period of four years may face a doubled risk of developing tinnitus, according to Austrian researchers.

The findings come from a study of just 200 people, reported in the journal Occupational and Environmental Medicine.

Researchers compared some 100 people with chronic tinnitus with another 100.

They found that people who used a mobile phone for ten minutes or more daily were 71 per cent more likely than others to develop the problem.

Researcher Dr Hans-Peter Hutter, of Vienna University, Austria, writes: "Considering all potential biases and confounders, it is unlikely that the increased risk of tinnitus from prolonged mobile phone use obtained in this study is spurious."
