Description

Many studies examine the use of cell phones and the potential increase in the likelihood that an individual gets brain cancer. However, even with multiple attempts to examine the effects of radiation linked to mobile devices, no consensus exists on the topic. We hope to examine the prevailing literature in an attempt to determine if radiation from cell phones does cause cancer. If no consensus exists, what causes different researchers to disagree?
