Cell phones don’t appear to cause cancer, major review finds

But the WHO classifies cell phones as “possibly carcinogenic”


Despite mounting concerns that cell phones may cause cancer, a new study—a major review of previously published research by a committee of international experts—concluded there was no convincing evidence the devices cause cancer, Reuters reports. It also found a lack of biological mechanisms by which a phone’s radio signals could trigger tumours. Two months ago, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer said cell phone use should be classified as “possibly carcinogenic in humans.” The controversy surrounding mobile phone use and their possible conection to the main types of brain tumour, glioma and meningioma, has existed for decades. Other studies from many countries have shown no indication of increases in brain tumours up to 20 years after mobile phones were introduced, and a decade after they became widespread.

  2. Cell phones might really be carcinogenic. I’ve seen experiments in which
    people bake eggs between two mobiles. I recommend you to use hands-free
