do cell phones cause cancer?

    We simply do not know yet. Lawmakers say they will seek more federally funded research into the possible connection between cell phone use and cancer, as was reported Sept. 15, 2009. The question lies in their radio-frequency radiation, that cell phones use to communicate with towers.

    Danish study (conducted by Johansen et al.) linked data on all of the 420,095 cell phone users in Denmark between 1982 and 1995, to the Danish Cancer Registry and found that when different types of brain cancer and specific locations of tumors within the brain were considered, none were consistently associated with cell phone use. Also, none of the studies showed a clear link between the side of the head on which the brain cancer occurred and the side on which the cellular phone was used.

    However, many animal experiments have also been conducted and have yielded conflicting results. A few of these studies have suggested that low levels of RF could accelerate the development of cancer in laboratory rats.

    There is now considerable evidence that shows no consistent association between cell phone use and brain cancer, although more research is needed before any definite conclusions can be drawn.
