Cell Phones and Brain Tumors: "No convincing evidence of a link"

Cell phones ‘don’t cause cancer’: study. (The Raw Story, 7/2/2011)\

Excerpt:   Scientific evidence goes increasingly against the theory that mobile phones cause cancer, a new study has concluded.  [Link to abstract.]

The review carried out for the Institute of Cancer Research found "no convincing evidence of a link" between the technology and brain tumours.

The panel, set up by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection, admitted however that the possibility of small or long-term repercussions could not be ruled out.

Their conclusions follow a wide-ranging study - the largest of its kind to date - which claimed that radiation associated with mobile handsets potentially increases the risk of glioma, a malignant form of the disease.
