Sheryl Crow

Cell Phone May Have

Caused Brain Tumor

Sheryl Crow believes excessive cell phone use may be to blame for the benign tumor in her brain.

Crow just appeared on Katie Couric's new show and said the tumor is located in her "cell phone area" ... and says, "I do have the theory that it's possible that it's related to [cell phone use]."

Crow admits her theory has not been confirmed by doctors, but says she's convinced because "[in the] early early days when I was promoting my first record, I did hours of phoners on the old archaic cell phones."

The singer says it became difficult to carry on normal conversations ... claiming she felt "mushy" ... and at one point she was convinced she had early onset Alzheimer's.

Later, she learned she had a benign tumor the size of her pinky that's located between her skull and the lining of her brain.

Crow told Katie the tumor is "nothing I have to worry about" but says it's important to monitor the situation.

The theory is out there. However, I suspect Crowe would be dealing with a malignant growth if a cell phone were to blame. She is very lucky that the tumor is in the extra-axial space. It doesn't seem big, but it actually is. I hope the cognitive issues she discussed are better now.

This idiot and Jenny McCarthy should go detoxify themselves by drinking bleach.

Perhaps the tumor was caused by Lance Armstrong's juiced juice?

I am living with a Mengianoma too... A doctor once told me that they are normally found in Autopsies. She should be happy they found it now. ( Mary Tyler Moore also had one - she had elective surgery to remove it though)

Coming from the same person who blamed water bottles for her breast cancer in 2006. I guess we are all going to die of brain tumors and breast cancer.

First she blamed her breast cancer on plastic water bottles, now she thinks a cell phone caused her brain tumor, she's wacko.....she probably caught that from Lance Armstrong's shriveled testicle....

I had a meningioma removed on June 26th and was back to work 2 weeks later. They are the easiest form of brain tumor removal and not very difficult to deal with. Mine was discovered due to deteriorating vision in one eye and memory issues. Everything is back to normal since my surgery. It is surprisingly easy to handle physically. headaches for a little over a week, then that was pretty much it. If she needs surgery, Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix is top notch (and they are the ones where Brett Michaels had his AVM surgery done a couple years ago).

You cant rely on US studies regarding cell phones and cancer. The European studies believe there is a link One more thing its interesting that Crow stated she believed she had early onset of Alzheimer's. The European studies also say that cell phones affect your cognitive abilities ie how the brain processes incoming information.

she had sex with lance armstrong while they both were talking on their cell phones. they would then drink water out of plastic bottles and eat soybeans together.

Cheryl went on to write a book on her life titled, "Don't *** in my hair or eyes".
