People who use mobile phones intensively appear to have a higher risk of developing certain types of brain cancer, French scientists said Tuesday, reviving questions about phone safety.The study, appearing in the latest issue of British journal Occupational and Environmental Medicine, is the latest foray in a long-running exploration of mobile-phone safety.In 2011, the International Agency for Research on Cancer said radio frequency fields used by mobile phones were possibly carcinogenic.The new study looked at 253 cases of glioma and 194 cases of meningioma reported in four French departments between 2004 and 2006 .The study also found several inconsistencies with other investigations that suggest a link between heavy phone use and brain cancer.
