Japanese Study: No Increased Cancer Risk with Cellphones

According to scientists at Tokyo Women's Medical University, using a mobile phone does not increase your risk of brain cancer, a finding which adds to the growing body of evidence that mobile phones are safe. The study, which is the first to consider the effects of radiation on different parts of the brain, compared phone use in 322 brain cancer patients with 683 healthy people and found that regularly using a mobile did not significantly affect the likelihood of getting brain cancer. They also studied the radiation emitted from different types of phones to assess the affect on different areas of the brain.

"Using our newly developed and more accurate techniques, we found no association between mobile phone use and cancer, providing more evidence to suggest they don't cause brain cancer," Naohito Yamaguchi, who led the research, said.
