The recent study released by Danish
scientists on the long-debated topic of whether cellphones are essentially a
factor in causing cancer to people/animals vindicates its long held position on

The nationwide study,

investigate effects in people, who had used mobile phones for 10 years or more, and it was found that

studies have found that cancer rates have not risen since cellphones were
