Use of Mobile Phones don't increase chances of Cancer, latest study suggests

The BMJ (British Medical Journal), in their latest Nationwide Cohort study in Denmark concluded that use of mobile phones has no increased risks of tumors of the central nervous systems.

As reported on CNN back in May "Radiation from cell phones can possibly cause cancer, according to the World Health Organization. The agency now lists mobile phone use in the same "carcinogenic hazard" category as lead, engine exhaust and chloroform.".

This debate has been ongoing for several years and different studies have different conclusions. National Cancer Institute doesn't think there is any consistent link between cell phone usage and brain cancer.

Cell phone technology and Cell phone usage has been rapidly changing in today's world, so it would need more research to draw any conclusion.

What are your thoughts? Do you think Cell phones can cause Brain cancer?
