The article cites a study showing that cell phones are not linked to cancer. A Danish study published in the journal "Neurology," found no connection between the use of cell phones and brain tumors. A total of 427 patients with diagnoses of glioma or meningioma and 822 randomly sampled controls were interviewed on their past cell phone use. Based on these interviews, as well as information from medical records and radiologic examinations, researchers concluded that the risks of glioma and meningioma were not significantly affected by cell phone use, frequency of use or number of years of use.
