Mobile phones emit electromagnetic radiations that are classified as possibly carcinogenic to humans. Evidence for increased risk for brain tumours accumulated in parallel by epidemiologic investigations remains controversial. This paper aims to investigate whether methodological quality of studies and source of funding can explain the variation in results. PubMed and Cochrane CENTRAL searches were conducted from 1966 to December 2016, which was supplemented with relevant articles identified in…

Use of mobile phones and risk of brain tumours: update of Danish cohort study
TLDR
There were no increased risks of tumours of the central nervous system among Danish mobile phone subscribers in this update of a large nationwide cohort study of mobile phone use, providing little evidence for a causal association.
Systematic review of wireless phone use and brain cancer and other head tumors
TLDR
Assessment of the review results using the Hill criteria did not support a causal relationship between wireless phone use and the incidence of adult cancers in the areas of the head that most absorb RF energy from the use of wireless phones.
Mobile phone use and risk of glioma in adults: case-control study
TLDR
Use of a mobile phone, either in the short or medium term, is not associated with an increased risk of glioma, and this is consistent with most but not all published studies.
Mobile phone use and risk of glioma in 5 North European countries
TLDR
The results overall do not indicate an increased risk of glioma in relation to mobile phone use, but the possible risk in the most heavily exposed part of the brain with long‐term use needs to be explored further before firm conclusions can be drawn.
Mobile phones and head tumours. The discrepancies in cause-effect relationships in the epidemiological studies - how do they arise?
TLDR
An analysis of the literature studies and of the results from meta-analyses of the significant data alone shows an almost doubling of the risk of head tumours induced by long-term mobile phone use or latency.

TLDR
There is possible evidence linking mobile phone use to an increased risk of tumors from a meta-analysis of low-biased case-control studies, and Prospective cohort studies providing a higher level of evidence are needed.
Meta-analysis of mobile phone use and intracranial tumors.
TLDR
The totality of evidence does not indicate a substantially increased risk of intracranial tumors from mobile phone use for a period of at least 5 years.
Use of mobile phones in Norway and risk of intracranial tumours
TLDR
The results from the present study indicate that use of mobile phones is not associated with an increased risk of gliomas, meningiomas or acoustic neuromas.
Systematic review and meta-analysis of psychomotor effects of mobile phone electromagnetic fields
TLDR
Mobile phone-like EMF do not seem to induce cognitive and psychomotor effects, and the existence of sponsorship and publication biases should encourage WHO intervention to develop official research standards and guidelines.
