A recent Swedish study showed that extensive use of cellular phones increases the risk of brain tumors. The researchers found malignant tumors were hundreds of times as likely to develop in individuals who spent over 2000 hours speaking on cell phones. The study also found that subjects who began to use cell phones before age 20 were in more danger of developing tumors, Army Radio reported.
