UPDATE May 31, 2011: You all need to listen to me! The powers that be are coming around to the possibility that cell phone use can cause cancer. Here is a Reuters report. OK, this is big news…that I have been saying for years! Here is a CBSNews report. The BBC picked up on it. The Washington Post. This one is very interesting by CNN showing the 10 most emitting and 10 least emitting cell phones.
If you read those, you will know I did a fair amount of research on the effects of electromagnetic radiation on the human body, and that I have a healthy respect for the possible effects.
They say that there is no conclusive study showing that there is a definite link to increased cancer risk and cell phone use.
On the other hand, they say that there is also no conclusive study showing no link.
As NPR says, “the jury is still out”.
What I Think
Unless you talk to me. When (yes, when) brain cancers increase rapidly in, maybe, 20 years (and I strongly believe they will….studies be damned)…it will be too late.
Take steps NOW to protect yourself.
Moderate your usage of cell phones. Interestingly, texting will help (at least with brain cancers).
Drive Safe! Never Forget.
