Sure, there have been a few studies backing this idea before, but it's one of those conclusions that you can never really hear enough: cell phones do not increase your risk of brain cancer.

This latest study comes from scientists at Tokyo Women's Medical University. The group studied the radiation emitted by different phones, testing its effect on different areas of the brain, and also contrasted 322 brain cancer patients with 683 healthy people. Comparing the two groups showed that serious mobile phone usage did not significantly increase your chances of developing brain cancer. So, chat away.
