This video looks into the correlation between cell phone use and cancer. Cell phone usage is growing amongst all demographics of society, and with its greater use and daily reliance, the development of cancer through cellular radiation has been a controversial concern. Through analyzing randomized control trials and meta-analysis, this video provides information about the association between cell phone use and cancer and methods of protection against radiation associated with increased cancer risk.
