EHP publishes study suggesting cell phone usage does not contribute to brain cancer

You know us. We love mobile phone integration. Wearable phones. Clothing doodads. You name it. That’s our bread and butter. Cancer, however, is not our bread and butter. It gives us great relief then to announce that a new study has been published nixing the heretofore thought notion that mobile phone usage causes brain cancer.

A scientific journal, Environmental Health Perspectives (EHP), has published an overview of similar studies that casts doubt on any links between cell phones and cancer. The journal has no affiliation with the cell phone industry, should you be foaming at the mouth just waiting to say “conspiracy.”

More on this as it develops, but for now, it seems we can keep gabbing.
