Heavy Cell Phone Usage Causes Salivary Cancer, Says Researchers

A recent study has found that there is a relation between mobile phones and cancer.

In reality, the mobile phone increases the risk of cancer to the salivary glands, the study says,

Researchers viewed 500 Israelis who have had salivary gland cancer and compared their cell phone usage with 1,300 healthy controls.

They found that the people who use cell phones on one side of the face for a long time about 50% daily are detected with developing salivary gland tumors.

The study findings appeared in The American Journal of Epidemiology.

This form of the cancer in the salivary gland is found very rarely.

It is said that people living in rustic areas have a higher risk of having these tumors as compared to the people living in the cities.

The reason that people staying in the rural areas do not have strong signals and they have to look for network antennas therefore more radiation is emitted during the search that gives rise to formation of tumors in the salivary glands.

But, many scientists said that there is no harm as there is no connection between cancer and mobile phones.

So people yet don’t know whether to believe this study or not. The link between mobile phones and cancer is yet not confirmed.
