The United Nations Lists Cell Phones as Cancer Hazard


The United Nations’ health agency, the World Health Organization, now lists mobile phone use in the same “carcinogenic hazard” category as lead, engine exhaust and chloroform.

But no adverse health effects have been established, the agency explains.

The decision to list cell phones as a cancer hazard came after a team of 31 scientists from 14 countries examined peer-reviewed studies on cell phone safety.

There seems to be a lot of "maybes" and "perhaps" and "a possiblity"s surrounding this idea of cellphones causing cancers. I don't know...I'd like to have some more concrete evidence linking cellphones to cancer, but...I also really don't want to get cancer, lol. I'll probably just stick to using the headset, instead of holding the thing to my ear, makes me feel better.

The problem is that if cells do fry your brains it may take 20, 30 or 40 years. Suggestiion is to use the headset or speaker and texting.
