George Carlo is projecting that by the year 2010, there will be half a million cases of brain and eye cancer each year attributable to cell phone use, based on current epidemiological studies. Carlo made this prediction yesterday on New Zealand's TV3 news show, Campbell Live, hosted by John Campbell.
In the same interview, Carlo accuses Disney of putting 8-to-12-year-olds in "unbelievable danger," calling Disney's marketing of cell phone service to such young kids "grotesque." You can watch the interview, as well as two related news segments on the TV3 Web site.
Carlo ran the U.S. cell phone industry's mobile phone research program between 1993 and 1999. More recently, he entered into a "strategic alliance" with BioPro Technology, which markets devices that Carlo and the company claim can protect users from the stress caused by EMFs.
