Research conducted by Tel Aviv University of Israel point out to the strong link between salivary gland cancer and mobile phone overuse.
Dr. Siegal Sadetzki, a cancer specialist at Tel Aviv University
headed the study. This contradicted with the early research findings, which said that there is no apparent link between mobile phone usage and cancer.
Nearly 500 Israelis were diagnosed with salivary tumor gland. Chances of developing salivary gland tumors are more in those who used phone against one side of their head for several hours a day.
The fact that cell phones of rural area has to emit more signals to locate between two antennas placed the people of rural areas under more risk.
Though the reliability of the result of study is still open to questions, optimum use of mobile phone, usage of speakerphones and hand-free devices etc will definitely put the mobile users on the safer side in the long run.
