Cellphones don’t trigger cancer

cellphoneAnother cellphone myth bites the dust as Danish scientists busted the popular belief linking cancer to cellphone use. This should reassure those who always have a cellphone in tow for the past 10 years or so.

The study tracked 420,000 Danish cellphone users and matched the records to that of the Danish Cancer Registry, which lists the names of every citizen stricken with cancer. The results are not something to sneeze at given the enormity of the database used.

The cellphone-cancer link myth has been passed on from one geek to another up to a point where some cellphone users were convinced that radiofrequency energy penetrates and toasts their brains. Though most research found no risk in cellphone use, some scientists aren’t going to let the gadget off the hook easily without conducting further studies, taking into consideration slow-growing cancers.

As it stands, we’re just glad that logging in an insane number of hours using the cellphone might not be a life-threatening activity after all.
