Do smartphones cause brain cancer ?

We all use mobile phones in our day to day life. Actually we can’t live without our mobile phones. Just a week ago, Researchers found that Smartphone separation can make us dumber and now, Emily Oster, An Associate professor of economics at Brown University says, the chances of developing a brain tumor every year is about 3 in 100,000 (very less).

Then, at the end of last year, a Swedish study was released
claiming that people who regularly used a mobile phone for more than 20
years were two to three times more likely to develop a brain tumour.
Even the World Health Organisation has now classified cell phone radiation as posing as carcinogenic risk to humans.
But it doesn’t seem to make sense – scientists know that mobile phone
radiation is non-ionising, which means it’s not strong enough to rip
electrons off atoms or molecules and destroy DNA. There’s no logical
reason that mobile phones should cause tumours. 
So what are we supposed to believe?
In the episode given below,
Derek from Veritasium breaks down the conflicting evidence surrounding
mobile phones and brain tumours, and also explains why the methodology
we’re using to test the link is fundamentally flawed.

In fact,
Derek argues, the answer to the question is far simpler than you might
imagine, and the large-scale, conclusive evidence is staring us in the
face. Watch the video below to find out the truth.
