Cell phones do not cause cancer

without comments

A controversial WHO ruling this week has categorized cell phones as “potentially carcinogenic.” A media frenzy has ensued, and it is very important to re-visit the data, which I summarize in an opinion piece:

“The positive data is paper-thin, skewed at best and probably not real at all, and the negative data is monumental. There is no plausible mechanism to suggest causation, and there is no data to even suggest correlation.”

See the summary in this week’s article: Cell Phones Part II
