Do cell phones cause tumors?

By Derek Sooman on October 14, 2004, 12:20 PM
Here's a nice thought for anyone using a cell phone, which would be, well... just about everyone, I guess. A Swedish research institute has released a report that links the use of analog cell handsets and a benign tumor. The study has found that 10 or more years of cell phone use may increase the risk of acoustic neuroma, a noncancerous tumor, in humans. Please try not to worry about this one too much - remember that just about everything is bad for you anyway.
