Brian Barrett, a victim of terminal brain cancer, believes his tumor was caused by his cell phone and says that the CAT scan of his brain shows that his tumor exactly matches the area of the radiation penetration from a cell phone antenna. He is bringing a lawsuit against the cell phone industry.
“I was an active cell phone user for many years, since the ’90s, mid-1994, and still use it but in an entirely different way because of what happened,” he says. “My billing would be a thousand, over 2,000 minutes per month.” He now uses a model with a separate ear piece.
“Brian’s case is very similar to over 100 potential plaintiffs we’ve spoken to around the country and in Europe,” says his lawyer, Joanne Suder. “We see a pattern here.”
Suder sees parallels between cell phone manufacturers and the tobacco industry. “There is a lot of information which they knew or absolutely should have known. There was no pre-testing market of these things.”
“I feel it’s a breach of trust,” says Barrett, who is married, with two daughters, ages 5 and 13. He hopes to live another 3 or 4 years. “I just know there is a connection, and I know that one of these days, the science is going to come down and pinpoint it.”
