Cell Phones Don’t Cause Cancer
Have you ever been told that using your cell phone too much might lead to cancer? I know that I’ve heard it, and that I’ve always been a little worried about using my phone frequently and sleeping with it charging next to my bed. All the studies and experiments revolving around cancer have made me wary about anything that has the possibility to cause it. However, after reading this article, I am slightly more at ease.
The article says that a recent Danish study found that cell phones do not cause tumors, as it has been rumored for a number of years. This experiment studied long-term use of cell phones, over a period of 18 years, a topic upon which previous results have been found inconclusive. The study looked for a link between cell phone usage and damage to the central nervous system, specifically tumors. Using a large number of people as test subjects and tracking their health for many years, the researchers found no link between cell phone usage and brain and nervous system tumors. The scientists recommended that more experiments be conducted on this same topic.
So what do you think? Did you believe, like me, that there was some risk in using your cell phone constantly? Are you happy to hear that there is finally some evidence against it? What other studies have you heard of proving or disproving something commonly used causing cancer?
