Study Says No Cancer Link From Mobile Phones... But Don't Expect The Controversy To Die
from the it-just-won't-die dept
The debate over whether cellphones cause cancer has been an endless game of scientific ping-pong, where a study will spring up supporting the conclusion, only to quickly be contradicted by a study that disagrees. A new Danish study tracked 420,095 people who've been using mobile phones for up to two decades or more, and found absolutely no evidence of a substantial cancer risk. The study is the largest yet disproving any cancer link, but the debate over the topic is like a b-horror film villain, who just keeps popping up after you're sure the last blow killed him. Science means little to the significant number of people who have made cancer via wireless their personal techno-bogeyman, so no study in the world is likely to change their minds and put this debate in the morgue.
