Do they? Don’t they? Do they, don’t they??? Today, they don’t. New research looking at a large selection of the Danish population has found that there is no definitive link between mobile phone usage and an increased chance of brain cancer.

The study, published in looked at 10,729 central nervous system tumours between the years 1990 and 2007 and found that there was little difference between the cancer rate of those who used mobile phones heavily for 13 years of more and those who hadn’t.

The report contradicts recent reports from the World Health Orginisation, who claimed they could find a link between mobile phone usage and an increased risk of cancer.

Still, if you’re finding yourself still a little worried about potential health risks, check out our mobile phone health tips here.
