Scientists find that mobile phones could increase brain cancer risk

As reported by Sky News, according to scientists at the World Health Organisation (WHO), the use of mobile phones could increase your chances of getting brain cancer.

The scientists have classified mobile devices as ‘possibly carcinogenic to humans’ and so have advised people to use their hands-free sets or text instead of calling. The scientists came to this classification after the discovery that the radiofrequency electromagnetic fields associated with handsets potentially heightened the chances of suffering glioma, a malignant form of the disease.
