The rock singer, 50, recently was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor and she believes that cell phone usage may be to blame. She appeared on the premiere episode of Katie Couric’s new show, Katie, to discuss her diagnosis.
“There are no doctors that will confirm that but I do have the theory that it’s possible that it’s related to that. I used to spend hours on the old archaic cell phones.”
Crow claims that the tumor is near a part of her brain where she often held her cell phone for years. She also stated that she began to suspect something was wrong with her when she began spacing out on stage, forgetting the lyrics to her songs and feeling overall lethargic.
So how does that bode for the rest of us who have been chatting away on cell phones for the last ten to fifteen years? Do I need to go and get my medulla oblongata checked on now? Can I sue Vodafone now? Lord knows I’ve been wanting to!
