In more detail, the new study by his epidemiologists University of Oxford and the IACR involved 776,156 women before developing a condition and followed them up to 14 years old to investigate a possible link between cell phone use and the appearance of brain tumors.

The findings of the study

During the study, 3,268 women (0.42% of the total) developed a brain tumor. But there was no statistically significant difference between those who had never used a cell phone and those who did, which was true for all types of brain cancer.

There was also no increase in cancer risk in those who used it their cell phone daily or for more than ten years. Finally, the chance of a tumor appearing was the same on the left and right side of the head, although most cell phone users use it by holding it on the right side.

“Mobile technologies are constantly evolving, so the latest generations of devices emit significantly less power. However, given the lack of data for very frequent users, a good precautionary approach is to advise unnecessary cell phone exposure “.
