    Life will kill you. I don't know why we're getting so up in arms over this.

    The youth are completely immune to this. They don't even know their phones can make calls. It's just a texting device.

    Now's the time to wear your tin-foil hats, folks.

    That might be a good point. I text/social network far more than I talk on the phone. And when I DO make or receive a call I usually use the speaker function.

    interesting that they produce no specifics... like X amount of cell phone use over Y amount of times increases your risk of cancer by Z percentage.

    My guess:

    Doc: "Do you have cancer?"
    Patient: "Yes, yes I do"
    Doc: "Do you own or use a cell phone?"
    Patient: "yes, yes I do"
    Doc: "Oh my god, there is a direct relation between cancer and cell phones...I better call the WHO!"

    Before its announcement Tuesday, WHO had assured consumers that no adverse health effects had been established.
    Maybe. Might. Could. Possibly... etc...etc... etc.

    Re: WHO: Cell phone use can increase possible cancer risk

    Also, I wonder if the studies the WHO studied here include those studies that found no correlation between cell phone use and possible harmful effects... or did they simply use the studies that fit what they expected to find?

    The W.H.O.'s actually position is that it is possible that there might be a small correlation to cell phone use and cancer...but they are not sure. So, like working in construction, cell phone use is considered a "carcinogen".

    Re: WHO: Cell phone use can increase possible cancer risk

    My cell phone gives me headaches after long calls, so now I just put it on speaker phone. I do agree that there is a health risk even though I don't have proof of it. It's low frequency microwave radiation. That has to do something if you're in a 1.5 hour phone call!
