H. Collatz Christensen, J. Schüz, M. Kosteljanetz, H. Skovgaard Poulsen, J. D. Boice, Jr, J. K. McLaughlin, and C. Johansen, Neurology, Volume 64, pp. 1189–1195, April 2005

2nd Brain Tumor Study of the Interphone Project Published
The case-controlled study is based on the Danish population. The authors did not find any association between use of cellular telephones and risk for glioma or meningioma.  On the contrary the use of cellular telephone was associated with a low risk for high-grade glioma (OR, 0.58; 95% CI, 0.37 to 0.90). the risk estimates were closer to unity for low-grade glioma (1.08; 0.58 to 2.00) and meningioma (1.00; 0.54 to 1.28).
