20-Year Study Finds No Cell Phone Cancer Risk

Reuters reports that a study that tracked 400,000 heavy cell phone users in Denmark, some beginning as far back as 1992, found no increase in cancer.

"A team of researchers used data on the entire population of Denmark to determine that neither short- nor long-term use of cellular phones, also called mobile phones, was linked to a greater risk of tumors of the brain and nervous system, salivary gland or eyes, leukemia or cancer overall," Reuters reported.

The report was funded by the Danish Cancer Society and the Danish Strategic Research Council, on which a Google search finds nothing.

The report supports conclusions of other cell phone cancer studies through the last several years.
