Good news! Your cell phone (might) not give you cancer!

The study, by the Danish Center for Cancer and Epidemiology, was conducted over the course of 18 years, using a group of 358,403 mobile phone users. It found 356 gliomas (a type of brain cancer) and 846 cancers of the central nervous system, which lands in the same incidence rate as those who didn't use mobile phones. Even in the group of super users (those with a mobile for 13+ years) the rate was no higher for cancer.
Despite this and other studies which have come to similar conclusions, the World Health Organization has categorized cell phones along with coffee in the category of items with which a link to cancer could neither be proved or disproved. So, we can rest a little easier knowing that it's looking less likely that cell phones will give us cancer, though it's still probably best to use a hands-free device when driving.

There's something wrong with your source link. There's an extra "space" and a "/" at the end of the url.

All the money that went into this 13+ years of research and this is what they came up with?! Having a cellphone for the past 13+ years and not developing a brain tumor; I could have came up with this conclusion for the research for free.
