The somewhat dated article you linked does not say that there has been a "massive increase in brain cancer. The article is about a study which claimed an increased risk. Do you have another article which actually does show statistics which indicate a "massive increase?"
First off I believe we are heading for a Brain tumour epidemic, there have been reports of a massive increase in Brain cancer within young people and that trend "seems" to not only continue but is getting worse.
Many analyses have examined the incidence rates of glioma to assess whether rates are increasing. The results of these have generally shown the incidence of glioma overall and glioma subtypes to be fairly stable over the time periods assessed.3,7,14,15 An examination of the annual age-adjusted incidence in Nordic countries between 1979 and 2008 found no clear trend in glioma incidence rates during this period, though there was a slight increase in brain tumor incidence rates overall.7 In an analysis of data from 12 Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results cancer registries between 1997 and 2008, no significant trend in incidence rates of all gliomas was found overall, although a slight decrease in incidence of low-grade glioma was observed.7,15 An analysis of Israeli brain tumor incidence found a significantly decreasing trend in incidence rates of low-grade gliomas (ICD-O-3 morphology codes 9380–9480, WHO grade II) between 1980 and 2009.3
