Cell Phones Really Do Cause Cancer? Take Troy’s Word For It
Oh, this is great! Just as my bosses are asking me to glue this thing to my hand, it seems that cell phones really DO cause cancer. This is according to new data just released by the World Health Organization.
Granted these studies basically come from the same people who two years ago said "we're fine"--who two years before that said "we think cell phones might be linked to cancer," and so on...
Too bad you can't rid yourself of a cell phone habit as you would say, your cigarettes. Alternatives are far and few when it comes to the little communicators that do everything from...well, everything, and have become irreplaceable in our constant-in-contact society. Hey, cancer! Take me! It was reported by CNN, so at least we have that going for us.
Apparently, the amount of radiation given off by the little danger boxes is somewhere close to the same percentage as "lead, engine exhaust, and chloroform." I guess that makes me feel a little better.
What that means is they found some evidence of increase in glioma and acoustic neuroma brain cancer for mobile phone users, but have not been able to draw conclusions for other types of cancers
If you're up for some very optimistic reading, here's the full report. And I'm just looking out for my bosses when I say these things need to be banned now! Together, we can make it happen.
We'd love to hear your thoughts on the matter.
