A study of more than 42,000 cell phone users has reported that mobiles are not associated with an increased risk of cancer.

The findings, which appeared in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, showed no link between mobile use and a higher incident of tumours in the brain, eye, salivary glands or leukaemia.

The team, from the Danish Institute of Cancer Epidemiology in Copenhagen, collected data on customers from mobile phone company records. More than 56,000 of those analysed had been using a mobile phone for at least ten years.

A report published in 2006 by the Institute of Cancer Research also concluded that cell phone use was safe.
