Do headphones really cause cancer?

Postby cruim37 » Fri Sep 30, 2011 11:01 am

Today someone told me headphones & listening to music causes brain cancer. I don't want to believe it but I have no idea.

Some studies say yes other not, depending on whom this order. Clear that telephone companies will not say that you can get cancer from their product! What is certain I think they have an influence on our health.

Short answer, no.
Long answer, if it does (and there's no evidence that there's any sort of correlation at all), it can only do so by some sort of physical process currently unknown to science (eg, "magic").
So, don't worry. And for future reference, listening to rumors is a good way to get confused and upset. Your best bet is just to laugh at anybody who tells you stuff like that. It's invariably wrong.

Someone lied to you. Wireless headphones are in question, as are wireless homephones, blue tooth and less in question with more evidence leaning towards them being a proven risk factor are cell phones.
