Cell Phones & Cancer

Not an April Fool's joke; a pretty thorough-seeming study indicates a 240% increased risk of cancer for heavy cell phone users.

Yet another reason to be glad I left practice, I suppose.  Then again, as the Reuters piece notes,

Last year, the Dutch Health Council, in an overview of research from around the world, found no evidence that radiation from mobile phones and TV towers was harmful. A four-year British survey in January also showed no link between regular, long-term use of cell phones and the most common type of tumor.

I can't find the report of the study on the Swedish National Institute for Working Life's website as yet.
