Reading file issue

I am parseing a file to extract data, but am seeing the file being updated even though I never explicitly write to the file. It is possible that another process is doing this at some later time, but I just want to check that opening the file as follows and ignoring a record would not result in that record being removed from the file.
I'm damned sure it wouldn't, but just wanted to check with the experts!.
for line in open("/home/john/myfile"):
linecount = linecount + 1
if linecount == 1: # ignore header
