Studies from several countries have failed to show an increase in brain tumors as many as 20 years after mobile phones were introduced and 10 years after the technology became widespread, according to the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection's committee on Epidemiology.

For the latest review experts looked at all published scientific studies on whether mobiles increase the risk of developing brain tumours, reports the Daily Express.

However, researchers behind the study say that small or long-term repercussions cannot be ruled out yet.

"Although there remains some uncertainty, the trend in the accumulating evidence is increasingly against the hypothesis that mobile phone use can cause brain tumours in adults," they said.
