A major international study looking into a possible link between cell phones and brain cancer has proven inconclusive.

Research by the World Health Organization found suggestions, but no definitive proof, that using cell phones increased the risk for Meningioma and Glioma.

13,000 people took part in the ten-year study in Europe and Japan. It will be published this week in the International Journal of Epidemiology.
