Danish Study Finds No Link Between Cell Phones And Cancer

Filed under: HealthCancer

Another study analyzing the link between cell phone usage and cancer has turned up positive results for the mobile phone companies!

Scientists from the Institute of Cancer Epidemiology in Copenhagen, Denmark have determined phones do not increase the risk of cancer.

Researchers studied more than 350,000 cell phone users who were all at least 30-years-old, then compared their rates of brain tumors to those who didn't use cell phones between 1990 and 2007.

This information clashes with the World Health Organization's belief that cell phones ARE possibly carcinogenic. While this makes us sleep better at night (right next to our cell phones, of course), we're sure another study will find a way to say otherwise and the debate will continue!

Study Finds No Link Between Cell Phone Usage And Brain Tumors

The debate between cell phone use and cancer continues!

Despite the World Health Organization's claims that cell phones ARE possibly carcinogenic, a new study shows that cell phone use doesn't seem to increase the risk of a noncancerous brain tumor.

Published in the American Journal of Epidemiology, almost 3 million Danish adults showed that those who used a cell phone for more than 11 years were not any more likely to develop a noncancerous brain tumor than those who began using them recently or don't use them at all.

That's a relief!

Any tumors found in the study were not even more frequent on the side of the head where the device was often used and the size of the tumor did not have any correlation to the amount of cell phone usage.

While this is definitely good news, researchers are still skeptical because the technology hasn't even been around long enough to study long-term results beyond 13 years.

Dr. Joachim Schuz, a researcher of the World Health Organization's IARC, said:

"As most cell phone users started their use only from the early 1990s onwards, we have only up to 15 years of observation time of larger numbers of users — which is perhaps too short to see an effect, if there is any."

We're crossing our fingers this and other studies with similar findings are CORRECT because we'd hate to find out in 10 years that we've been slowly killing ourselves all along!

It’s hard to believe Helena Christensen is 42-years-old. The gorgeous Danish model is looking amazing!

Christensen was spotted yesterday in NYC riding her bicycle on the Hudson River Greenway in the West Village.

All that bicycling seems to be paying off, just check out those toned arms and legs!

She may be from Denmark, but Time Out New York considers Oh Land to be one of the most fashionable New Yorkers.

In fact, they even put the singer on the front of next week's cover.

Wow, that's quite the compliment.

Congrats!

The New Sport Of The Year

Filed under: Silly!ZportzAwardzRabbitsBunnyContest

Alright - we don't know who came up with this concept and how, but we have two words to describe it…ADORABLE and GENIUS!

Apparently the sport is catching on in America, with the Rabbit Hopping Organization of America headquarters in Eugene, Oregon. Yet the sport's roots come from Scandinavia.

In Europe alone, there are more than 4,000 registered rabbit hoppers! DAYUM!

One of the largest competitions takes place in the Netherlands each year.

There are different events in the competition, such as long jump, high jump, and agility course. A Danish rabbit is the current world record holder for both the long jump, at 9.8 feet (3 meters), and the high jump, at 3.4 feet (one meter).

They even have a science for choosing what breed and age hops best! The dutch don't mess around!

However, once male rabbits reach six months old, they often become more interested in the scent of female rabbits than in jumping over a bamboo stick propped up by flower pots.

HA! Could you blame them?!
