Cell phones do cause cancer?

(Picture blatantly taken from the article at DailyMail and boy is she happy to be getting cancer!)

Expanding upon something people have joked about, then proved, then disproved to be a real concern, once again a group of researchers have decided that "Yes", we do again think that Cell Phones cause cancer:
They found even low levels of radiation from handsets interfere with the way brain cells divide. Cell division encourages the growth of tumours.
Now, I don't much rightly know much bout these here "Cells", but this sounds an awful lot like the same line people were giving for Aspertame? We use things on a daily basis that do strange things to cell structure, so I guess I'm just confused what the difference here is?

Perhaps it only affects those who use it non stop, like the person you posted. I myself do not use it 24 7 and so I am that type of cancer free

I gotta say, my jaw has hurt the last few days and all I can think of is I'm one of those lucky bastards that got a tumor from using my cell phone for a looooooong conversation just once last week...

Usually I hate the damn thing...

I have a bottle of champagne ready for the day that it's announced that anyone who used their cellphone for more than two hours a day while driving, standing in line at check-out counters, walking through parks or sitting on the metro/Amtrak train will die a slow, painful death due to maggot-like brain ulcers.

And a second bottle for the day that anyone who sent more than 10 text-messages a day for a year develops crippling, inoperable carpal-tunnel syndrome.
