Cell Phones

I don't think many people in this group are among the people I see that have their cell phones against their heads for a major part of the day.  However, if you are one of those people, maybe you can consider using speakerphone or a headset as much as possible.



Pittsburgh Cancer Center Warns of Cell Phone Risks

Pittsburgh cancer institute warns of cell phone-cancer risk, defying published research

The head of a prominent cancer research institute issued an
unprecedented warning to his faculty and staff Wednesday: Limit cell
phone use because of the possible risk of cancer.

The electromagnetic fields emitted by cell phones might be a cancer danger.

The warning from Dr. Ronald B. Herberman, director of the University of
Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, is contrary to numerous studies that don't
find a link between cancer and cell phone use, and a public lack of
worry by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Herberman is basing his alarm on early unpublished data. He says it
takes too long to get answers from science and he believes people
should take action now — especially when it comes to children.

"Really at the heart of my concern is that we shouldn't wait for a
definitive study to come out, but err on the side of being safe rather
than sorry later," Herberman said.

Are you still willing to believe there is no risk from holding a transmitter up to your head for long periods?
