A Danish study says use of cell phones does not raise the risk of brain tumors. It immediately comes under fire from groups that say the danger is real.
New research out of Europe suggests that children who use cell phones are at no increased risk of developing brain tumors. But researchers still caution that more studies are needed.
Research on nearly 3 million Danish adults suggest that a decade of cell phone use does not increase the risk for at least some types of non-cancerous brain tumors.
A new U.K. science review says not to worry about brain tumors while chatting on mobile phones because "evidence overall has not demonstrated any adverse effects on human health."
