In a decade of research and 5 years of closely monitoring the correlation between cell phone use and increased risk to cancer it’s safe to say there is no link between cancer and your mobile phone habits.
According to a study of 1,000- children and adolescents participants published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute the effects of using cell phones does no promote the growth of cancerous cells. The study compared groups diagnosed with brain tumors against a control group of cellphone-using individuals who were in good health.
The studies abstract read:
“The absence of an exposure-response relationship either in terms of the amount of mobile phone use or by localization of the brain tumor argues against a causal association,”
Thesea are the latest findings in a pool of extensive research aimed at finding the truth about whether cellphones cause cancer or not.
Mashable.com recently outlined the most recent prior 3 studies:
- The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) announced the results of its cellphones/cancer study in May of this year, calling cellphones “possibly carcinogenic to humans.”
- A study published in February found that cellphone use caused increased activity in certain parts of the brain, but couldn’t determine if those effects were causing any harm, or even if they were beneficial.
- Last year, a less-credible study that was partially funded by the wireless industry found no evidence of increased risk of brain tumors associated with mobile phones. But the scientists behind that study acknowledged that the results weren’t definitive.
