(But who is behind this nonsensical claim?)
'Mobile phones do not cause brain cancer, new research suggests.
A Spanish study of more than 9,000 people found no evidence radiation given off by mobiles and microwaves makes people more at risk of brain tumours.
Mobiles give off electromagnetic field (EMF) radiation, which has been linked to genetic damage and cancer.
In 2011, the International Agency for Research on Cancer classified EMF as possibly cancer causing in humans.
However scientists of the recent study, the largest so far, argue the health body was likely erring on the side of caution due to EMF being so widespread, with everyone being exposed to some extent.
How the research was carried out
The researchers, from the Barcelona Institute for Global Health, analysed around 9,000 people from seven countries, of which more than 5,000 had a brain tumour.
EMF exposure was collected via interviews to determine if the participants worked with or nearby radiation sources.
The participants' careers varied, with some having high EMF exposure jobs such as medical diagnostics, telecommunications and radar engineering.
Of the participants, 10 per cent were considered to have high EMF exposure and one per cent intermediate amounts.
Further studies required
Results suggest there is no evidence that EMF exposure causes brain cancer.
The researchers add, however, only relatively few of the participants were exposed to high amounts of EMF.'
