Today in Mobile

The World Health Organization today released results from the largest study to date on links between mobile use and certain types of cancer, saying the data is still “inconclusive.” As Tomi Ahonen points out, though, that’s not to say that the WHO didn’t turn up some evidence of a link — which has led some news outlets to report that prolonged use does indeed increase the risks of cancer. It’s very difficult to find much of a takeaway from the study, then, but if I’m a high-end user who holds a phone to my head for hours on end, I’m investing in a quality headset and considering limiting my usage a bit.
