WHO reports possible link between brain cancer and cell phones
Today, May 31, 2011, the International Agency for Research on Cancer of the World Health Organization issued a press release titled "IARC CLASSIFIES RADIOFREQUENCY ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS AS POSSIBLY CARCINOGENIC TO HUMANS."
The premise for the study cites a rising concern about the possibility of dire health effects of wireless communication devices. The WHO study group discussed literature on exposure related to wireless use.
Hundreds of documents that claim to provide information on possible links between wireless devices and certain brain cancers were studied.
The report says in part: "The evidence was reviewed critically, and overall evaluated as being limited among users of wireless telephones for glioma and acoustic neuroma, and inadequate to draw conclusions for other types of cancers."
Their conclusion tells us there "could" possibly be a little risk. They also conclude they need to study this further as much of the information is also inconclusive.
The IARC committee just studied other scientist’s documents and did not perform actual studies themselves.
