So maybe cell phones won't kill you after all.
There is mounting evidence that mobile phones don't increase your odds for getting brain cancer, according to a study out yesterday.
"Although there remains some uncertainty, the trend in the accumulating evidence is increasing against the hypothesis that mobile phone use can cause brain tumors in adults," wrote researchers in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives.
The findings are a blow to the World Health Organization, which just a month ago declared that cell phones are "possibly carcinogenic to humans," arguing that using them could cause brain tumors.
But experts who looked at previously published research on the issue determined there isn't enough proof to make that claim.
The panel - which hailed from the U.S., England, Australia and Sweden - focused on a survey published last year of 13,000 cell phone users over 10 years.
The data gave no clear answer, nor do countless other studies across the globe, the panel determined.
The WHO's International Agency for Research on Cancer acknowledged there is no direct link between cancer and cell phones but believes the devices put users at an "increased risk" for the malignant brain cancer glioma.
They also list coffee, booze and working the night shift as possible cancer triggers.
