There is a definite connection between the use of cellular phones and the development of cancerous tumors, a new Israeli study shows. Army Radio reported that the study, conducted on behalf of the World Health Organization, determined that chances of developing tumors increased by 34% with people using cell phones over five years. The study also showed that the people living in big cities where cellular antennas are numerous were in less of a danger.
