Yes… and no.
A new study by Danish researchers published in the British Medical Journal reports no association between cell phone subscription and central nervous system cancer.
The good news is that this study offers no evidence that cell phone users are at increased risk of cancer. So based on the results of this study, one would not be inclined to generate and further test the hypothesis that cell phone use causes cancer.
On the other hand — and not that we want to aid any fearmongering — this study is hardly what we would call scientific.
Exposure to radiation from cell phone use was assumed from the existence of a cell phone contract. So the researchers have no idea of how much radiation any study subject was exposed to.
If the researchers had estimated exposure based on cell phone bills/usage, they would have had a much more credible study.
In any event, here’s the real cell phone scare. 🙂
