Cell phone use may cause constant ringing in your ear

(KWWL) -- The constant ring of your cell phone may be causing ringing in your ear!

A European study of one hundred patients with tinnitus, a condition marked by constant noise in the ear, shows a 70 percent increased-risk among people who use their cell phone for ten minutes a day.

The risk was double among people who used a cell phone for more than four years.

Experts say the auditory pathway absorbs a significant amount of energy from mobile phones, so that may be behind the increased risk.

However, they say many more studies are needed.
