Sheryl Crow Fears Cell Phone Use is to Blame for Brain Tumor
The singer was diagnosed with meningioma after revealing to her doctor she started forgetting the lyrics to her songs and struggled with simple tasks
(WENN) - Singer Sheryl Crow is convinced the benign tumour medics found in her brain earlier this year developed as a result of constant cell phone use.
The Grammy-winning breast cancer survivor reveals she asked her doctor for help when she started forgetting the lyrics to her songs and struggling with simple tasks, fearing the early onset of Alzheimer’s disease.
Crow underwent an MRI in a bid to get to the root of the problem, and she was subsequently diagnosed with meningioma in June.
And now Sheryl reveals she fears there is a connection between her tumour and the amount of time she spends on her cell phone.
During an interview with Katie Couric on Monday, she said, "I say it’s in my cell phone area, and there are no doctors that will confirm that, but I did have a conversation with Sanjay Gupta about it."
"I do have a theory that it’s possible that it’s related to that, because (in the) early, early days when I was promoting my first record, I did hours and hours of phoners (phone interviews), on those old, archaic cell phones."
Crow battled breast cancer in 2006.
