In een interview op15 sept. 2008 bij ABC TV sprak de vooraanstaande Australische neurochirurg Dr. Teo opnieuw over het verband tussen mobiel bellen en hersentumoren waarvan hij vindt dat het niet te ontkennen is (''compelling'') ook al ontbreekt het puur wetenschappelijk bewijs.

Het volledige abstract en een kort excerpt van het interview vindt u op:

De betreffende passage op het eind van het interview luidt:

..............ANDREW DENTON: You also have great skill and great passion the Cure for Life Foundation your stated aim is to try and find a cure for brain cancer, the incidents of which is increasing. Might I inquire er a mobile phone is anything to do with that in your view?

DR CHARLIE TEO: In my view yes, but not scientifically no. If you look at the science on mobile phones and the link with brain cancer, it is quite compelling but thereís no double blinded studies, thereís no placebo controlled studies etcetera, etcetera, you thereís really no science to it. Thereís an association and the association is quite compelling. I think the scariest thing is that we know that when you give radiation for cancer to the brain, you can develop brain cancer from the radiation so we know that, we know that radiation causes cancer, but it takes about ten years for it to develop, so we know that EMR electromagnetic radiation is going to take at least ten years to create brain tumours and possibly longer fifteen, twenty years, so if you look at the literature and just pull out the studies that have followed their patients for more than ten years it becomes really, really compelling the link personally I think there probably is.

ANDREW DENTON: Do you use a mobile?

DR CHARLIE TEO: Yeah but I always put it on loud speaker, so you know hello wait one minute, go outside and put it on loud speaker.

ANDREW DENTON: I just put mine over the other side of the room and shout.

DR CHARLIE TEO: Yes.........................
