Mobile Phones & Brain Tumors?
The issue of whether mobile phones can increase your risk of a brain tumor is still being debated. A recent study from the journal Pathophysiology found that “mobile phone use increased the risk of glioma” (a very common type of brain/central nervous system tumor) by 30%.
Like many innovations, the dangers are often times only revealed after years or even decades of use. Until the science is conclusive, the best bet is to use your cell phone away from your head as much as possible. While the benefits of doing so are not yet known, it doesn’t hurt to do what you can to offset any potential risks.
