Experts question mobile-phone danger

Experts are questioning the latest study on the potential health risks of mobile phones, which claims to have found increased risk of brain tumors in mobile users. The Swedish National Institute for Working Life study claims to have identified a 240 percent increased risk of a malignant tumor on the side of the head where the phone is most commonly used. Heavy users, those which were early adopters and continued to use handsets for around 2,000 hours, or one hour per day for 10 years, were found to be more at risk. But this research contradicts previous studies carried out by the Institute of Cancer Research and the universities of Leeds, Nottingham and Manchester, and the FDA says the Swedish findings are "difficult to interpret" and contradict earlier studies.
