Tumor Risk from Cell Phones

Swedish researchers reported this week finding a correlation between long-term cell phone use and tumor risk, contradicting two earlier studies.

The report suggested a 240 percent increased risk of a malignant tumor on the side of the head the cell phone is used on. The researchers recommended using a headset to reduce the risk.

If the study is validated by additional studies it will not be surprising, as many new technologies, drugs and foods create new risks of negative effects since people have not had time to adapt to them the way we have the natural environment over the past three million years.
