I never really paid much attention to the "mobile phones give you cancer" brigade, however I somehow do not think that they will welcome this study with open arms:


The latest study led by the Institute of Cancer Epidemiology in Denmark looked at more than 350,000 people with mobile phones over an 18-year period.

Researchers concluded users were at no greater risk than anyone else of developing brain cancer.


This backs up similar recent studies, which also came to the same conclusion.

That's not to say that they are 100% safe; a study conducted by the WHO a while ago hinted at a possibility of carcinogenicity:


In doing so, the WHO put mobile phones in the same category as coffee, meaning a link could not be ruled out but could not be proved either.



Of the 358,403 mobile phone owners looked at, 356 gliomas (a type of brain cancer) and 846 cancers of the central nervous system were seen - both in line with incidence rates among those who did not own a mobile.

Even among those who had had mobiles the longest - 13 years or more - the risk was no higher, the researchers concluded.

Cell phones cause cancer same way as old TV's. There is not much difference. Risk is very small, but every device with electricity can cause cancer, even light bulb. All they send radiation outside.
