Institute of Cancer Epidemiology in Denmark found no difference in risks of brain cancer risk in those who mobile phone and those who don’t
New research in Denmark has found that there is no link between mobile phones and brain cancer, contradicting an earlier WHO report, which classified mobile phones as a possible cancer risk.
According to the study led by the Institute of Cancer Epidemiology in Denmark, users were at no greater risk than anyone else of developing brain cancer, the BBC reported.
The report said that researchers studied over 350,000 people with mobile phones over an 18-year period.
The health risk mobiles present has been much debated. The Danish study, published on the British Medical Journal website, comes after a series of studies have come to similar conclusions.
In June, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis said that radiation from cell phones doesn’t appear to cause cancer in rats.
In July, the International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection committee said that it is almost certain that mobile phones do not lead to brain cancer in adults, according to a report by the Guardian.
The committee of scientists studying the effect of mobile phones found that the number of cases of brain tumours was not increasing, despite the fact that mobile phones have been around for 20 years now and and have been popular for a decade.
