Long or short-term mobile phone use – or cellular phones as popularly known in the Caribbean is not associated with increased risk of cancer, a major study has found. Mobile phone antennas emit electromagnetic fields that can penetrate the human brain. But a Danish team found no evidence that this was linked to an increased risk of tumors in the head or neck as had been feared. The study, of more than 420,000 mobile phone users, appears in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. Researchers at Danish Institute of Cancer Epidemiology in Copenhagen looked at data on people who had been using mobile phones from as far back as 1982.

However, expert advice is still to limit mobile phone use among young people as a precautionary measure, as their head and nervous systems may still be developing. And the government currently advises mobile phone users to keep their call times short. There are more than one billion mobile phone users worldwide.
