 Excessive Use of Mobile Phone Raises Tinnitus Risk

Here's a piece of information for those addicted to talking on cell phones - a new study has claimed that excessive use increases the risk of tinnitus by 71 percent.

Tinnitus is a ringing or booming sensation in one or both ears, possible a symptom of an ear infection or Meniere's disease.

Scientists found that those who used mobiles for 10 minutes a day were 71 percent more likely to suffer from it.

"It is unlikely that the increased risk of tinnitus from prolonged mobile phone use obtained in this study is spurious," The Daily Star quoted the researchers as saying.
