Cancer concern

Q I see a different headline every week, so set me straight: do cellphones cause cancer or not?

A At this point, there is no compelling evidence to suggest they do. The closest thing to a definitive study on the subject was recently published in the British Medical Journal. It examined the incidence of brain and nervous system cancer in 358 403 Danish cellphone users over 10 years and found no meaningful link between cellphone use and tumour growth. So call and text and browse without fear – for now.
