Danish Study Finds No Evidence that Mobile Phones Increase Risk of Brain Cancer

In what could be deemed much needed relief for health conscious people all over the world, a group of researchers in Denmark claims they have successfully established that mobile phones do not heighten the risk of brain cancer.
