The World Health Organization studied almost 13,000 cellphone users over the course of 10 years to determine whether or not there's a link between cellphones and cancer. Their results? Inconclusive!

Even after all that time and such a large study, they claim that further research is needed to determine if heavy cell users are in danger.

"The results really don't allow us to conclude that there is any risk associated with mobile phone use, but... it is also premature to say that there is no risk associated with it," the IARC's director Christopher Wild told Reuters.


But really, if there was a very strong connection, one would think they would have seen it in this study. But just last month some European scientists launched an even bigger study that will track a quarter million people over 30 years. And if by the time that's over we still aren't sure whether or not talking on a cellphone gives you brain cancer, well, we're idiots. [Reuters via Slashdot]
