A Japanese study has determined that cellphones don’t cause cancer. The AFP reports:As someone who just recently became a text-aholic, this is great to hear.
In a study published on Tuesday in the British Journal of Cancer, researchers led by Naohito Yamaguchi compared the history of mobile phone use in 322 brain cancer patients with 683 healthy people living in Tokyo.Sweet! Now I text my BFF and spend even more time ROTFLMAO—LOL! OMG, I’ll TTYL.
"We studied the radiation emitted from various types of mobile phones and placed them into one of four categories relating to radiation strength," said Yamaguchi.
"We then analysed how they would affect different areas of the brain, taking into account the organ's complex structure."
He added: "Using our newly developed and more accurate techniques, we found no association between mobile phone use and cancer, providing more evidence to suggest they don't cause brain cancer."
