Incorrect cellphone use causes cancer - court (2)

Turin, April 20 - An incorrect use of a cellphone can cause cancer, a court in the northern Italian city of Ivrea has said. In its ruling, the court sentenced work-accident agency INAIL to pay a professional illness pension to a worker diagnosed with a tumour after using a cellphone without protection for three hours a day for 15 years. The tumour, benign but invalidating, was caused by the incorrect use of the cellphone, a judge ruled. The man's lawyer said "let's hope the sentence leads to a campaign to raise awareness, which doesn't yet exist in Italy".
