Danish researchers looked at more than 350,000 people and found that there was no difference in the cancer rates of people who used a mobile phone for about a decade versus people who did not use a cell phone.

Earlier this year, the World Health Organization may have announced that radiation from mobile phones can possibly cause cancer, but new research out of Denmark is reassuring all cell phone users that they're probably safe.

In what is the biggest study to date on any possible link between mobile phones and cancer, Danish researchers looked at more than 350,000 people and found that there was no difference in the cancer rates of people who used a mobile phone for about a decade versus people who did not use a cell phone. Critics of the research say that the study didn't look at people long enough to determine if there was a long-term risk of mobile-phone use, as brain tumors can take years to develop, according to ABC News.What do you think? Do you worry about radiation and cancer when it comes to using your cell phone?
