20-year study concludes cell phones not causing cancer after all

The Scandinavian countries, with their stellar public health systems, also have one of the best track records for recording cancer occurrences, with full details by type and frequencies, so they were also a perfect match from a scientific research standpoint.
In the end, it turned out that glioma cases, the broad type of brain and spinal cord tumors that would supposedly form from cell phone radiation, have not become more often than 15 years ago, when smartphones entered the fray in those countries. There is a slight increase in women, and an actual decline in men, but on the whole there is no direct correlation between tumors and cell phones in countries like Finland, which had 40% cell phone penetration as far back as 1997.

I'm not one to follow or promote conspiracy theories, and I don't really care regardless, I'll use a mobile ANYWAY, but obviously that's what the governments will assure us anyway in this multi-billion industry...

Yeah, because governments are totally coming out and supporting cigarette companies by saying that smoking cigarettes doesn't cause cancer, right?

AWiseAss...I mean Guy... Goverments cannot track and surveillance people through cigarettes... but they can through Cell Phone technology. How many reports have been posted this year of Wireless Companies stating that their records are being subpoenaed by law enforcement agencies? The Governments want people to use this kind of technology. It only helps big brother.

They say it happens if you put the phone too close to your head, as in phone calls. So, some ads recommend texting instead of calling... And some say it spoils your eyes to look at the phone screen too much...problem is, everything spoils your eyes if you look at something bright too close. Hm...i don't know, this is not very helpful. I mean, after few months or weeks, another group of scientists will have a proof that it really damages the brain and blah blah...back to square 1.

Cool, I bet they also find that the sun doesn't cause skin cancer, there are no harmful chemicals in our food and water, and the gas supply of the world will last forever. Then we can all live happily and keep buying all the awesome healthy products.
