Do Cell Phones Cause Cancer?
There has been concern that cell phone use may contribute to the incidence of brain tumors. Most of the research on this topic has been done in Europe since their experience with cell phones is of longer duration than the US. Researchers to date have found no association "with glioma, meningioma, or acoustic neuroma, even among persons who had been subscribers for 10 or more years."
This is not to say that cell phones are safe as most carcinogen exposure takes decades before a tumor develops.
