Using a mobile phone, even for 10 years, does not increase the risk of brain cancer, UK researchers report. The scientists, who conducted the largest study so far on the subject, said they could not rule out a higher risk over a longer period, however, the Independent reported. "The results of our study suggest there is no substantial risk in the first decade after starting use," said Anthony Swerdlow, of the Institute of Cancer Research in London. "Whether there are longer term risks remains unknown, reflecting the fact that this is a relatively recent technology." The research, published in the British Journal of Cancer, focused on the risk of acoustic neuroma, benign tumours that grow in the nerve connecting the ear and inner ear to the brain, close to where handsets are held. The institute's analysis pooled studies conducted in Britain, Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden, all countries where mobile phones were introduced early. (Health Scout)
