CMCH Synopsis: 317 people living in Sweden who had been diagnosed with a brain tumor filled out a questionnaire on the amount of time they used cell phones or cordless phones leading up to the year before their tumor was diagnosed. Their cell phone use was compared to the use of people who had no brain tumor diagnosis. Researchers found that people who use analog and digital cell phones and cordless phones for longer periods of time are more at risk for developing a malignant brain tumor. © Center on Media and Child Health
