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!

One of our new favorite artists Oh Land also snagged her own cover spot for Vs. magazine's spring issue.
The Danish singer struck various poses for the mag and the end results are gorgeous.
We hope to see more of her in magazines and soon!

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.

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?!
After seeing these pictures it's hard to believe supermodel Helena Christensen will be turning 42 at the end of the year!
The Danish beauty, who will be walking a mile-long runway during Copenhagen Fashion Week, is in the summer issue of Corduroy magazine and she looks absolutely gorgeous!
Don't U agree???
