Kids aren’t at any more risk of brain cancer if they use cell phones, according to a new European study.
Swiss scientists tracked 352 children ages 7 to 19 who were diagnosed with brain cancer in four European countries. The study compared them with healthy kids. About half of both groups said they were regular cell phone users. Children who said they’d been using cell phones at least five years were not at a higher risk than those who said they’d never regularly used them. Duration, number of calls and which ear they used did not make a statistical difference.
