Tmedium_2796862756he famous musician Sheryl Crow was, at some point in her life, diagnose with both breast cancer and a non-cancerous brain tumor. Now a survivor, she theorizes that the use of mobile phones may have caused the brain tumor.

She is not alone in this thinking. Back when Nokia was the only go-to brand for mobile phone technology in the early 2000’s, many people were also quite cautious of using a mobile phone. The large, chunky, and heavy pieces and their plastic pen-thick antennae were eyed with suspicion, and students were advised to keep texting and phone calls at a minimum “for their health”. Technology has marched on – mobile phones became sleeker, more intelligent, and more efficient.

Scientists doubt that there is a connection between brain tumors and mobile phones. Based on their research, the electromagnetic fields and heat a using a phone generates is way far too little to encourage cell degradation and breakdown in a human body.
