Mobiles Don't Cause Cancer

A new study claims that there is no link between increasing mobile phone use and brain cancer. It is found that in 30 plus years aged persons there is no rise in tumours in Oz despite widespread use of the devices. Researchers from University of Sydney did the study. 19,858 Men and 14,222 women diagnosed with brain cancer in Australia between 1982-2012. The study was based on them. 

The study found that age adjusted brain cancer incidence rates has risen only slightly in males but were stable over 30 years in females. In 1993 mobile phone usage was about 9 per cent. Increase in brain cancer incidence was reported in people over 70 years. Rise in incidence in this age began from 1982, before the start of mobiles.
