New cell phone study to follow 250,000 users for 30 years

And here we go again. Every few months (it seems) there’s another study telling us that either cell phones are safe, or they are evil. It just goes to show, there’s a study to prove anything. This particular study however is going to take a bit more time then the other ones have. Plus, it’ll involve quite a few more people.

The new study is part of the Mobile Telecommunications and Health Research Program, and will follow a group of 250,00 people of all ages for 20 to 30 years. This is the largest study to date, however it is worth nothing that it will not include children. This is particularly odd considering a some studies show children as being particularly susceptible to certain types of radiation.
