In the news: Cell-phone brain tumors again.

In a recent article, Swedish researches have contradicted the conclusions of other recent research programs by finding a link between cellphone use and brain tumors.

Studying 905 people who have had a malignant brain tumor, 85 were high users of mobile phones. They also concluded that the risk was higher on the side of the head the phone was used upon.

They suggest using handsfree as a way to get the risk down. But won't that just move the cancer? Based on where I put my phone when I'm in hands-free mode, I'm not so sure I like that idea!
