Recent findings of a study regarding a possible link between cell phone use and brain cancer were inconclusive. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), researchers of the international study found that most cell phone use was not a contributor to a higher risk of meningioma or glioma brain tumor development.
As noted in the report, the authors suggest that further research is needed to make a conclusion about the certainty that a link does not exist between radiation from cell phones and brain cancer. The Mobile Manufacturers Forum is quoted by the AP as releasing the statement regarding the research, “The mobile phone industry takes all questions regarding the safety of mobile phones seriously and has a strong commitment to supporting ongoing scientific research.”
More information about the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer study will be published in the International Journal of Epidemiology.
