The Argument

If cell phone use was responsible for increased cancer risk, then epidemiologic research would show a clear correlation between cell phones and cancer, but no such connection has been found. Three large-scale epidemiologic studies have investigated the potential link between cell phones and cancer, and none of them indicated a statistically significant association between cancer diagnoses and cell phone use in the populations studied, even after 10+ years of monitoring. Numerous smaller studies have further validated these findings.
