WHO panel warns that cell phone use may cause cancer

WHO panel warns that cell phone use may cause cancer: "Scientists from the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a group affiliated with the World Health Organization (WHO), say that mobile phones are a 'possible' carcinogen that may be a cause of cancer. The findings, which support previous research on the subject, add to the growing body of evidence which suggests that the electromagnetic radiation emitted from mobile phones causes serious health problems.

'A positive association has been observed between exposure to the agent and cancer for which a causal interpretation is considered ... to be credible,' states the IARC. However, in the same train of thought, the agency claims that evidence is 'limited' to suggest that mobile phone usage is linked to glioma or acoustic neuroma, two types of brain cancer.

In 2009, IARC published a study in the Journal of Clinical Oncology that linked mobile phone usage to an 18 percent increase in brain tumor risk. And because it was observed that such tumors tended to form on the sides of brains where mobile phones were primarily used, the connection between the two is even more striking ("

We recommend that you use ear phones with your cell phones, not blue tooth, which is actually worse, since it puts the emitter of the radiation deeper into your skull. Frequently shift the location of the phone on your body, left side, right side, back of the belt, etc. Finally, make sure you take massive amounts of antioxidants, which counteract the damage done by the cell phone radiation.
