Danish study finds mobile phone use doesn’t increase risk of tumours

A newly-published piece of research from Denmark has found that mobile phone use apparently resulted in no increased risks of tumours of the central nervous system.

The study looked at all Danes aged 30 or above and who were born in the country after 1925. Information about the risk of tumours of the central nervous system came from the Danish Cancer Register; this was then processed along with details about mobile phone use. The use of computerised records avoided the need to contact any individuals.

People who did and who didn’t use mobile phones were found to have a very similar risk of tumours, even with people who’d used mobile phones for more than a decade.

The researchers have pointed out that further studies with larger groups are recommended.
