Possible cancer risk with cellphones: WHO
The World Health Organization has started listing cellphone use as a possible "carcinogenic hazard", putting it in the same category as lead, engine exhaust and chloroform, according to various reports.
A team of scientists from 14 countries found enough data to show a possible connection between cell phones and certain kinds of brain cancer, according to Reuters. But so far, there haven't been enough long-term studies that conclusively link cellphone radiation to cancer.
Is it responsible of WHO to give such a warning based on, thus far, half-baked conclusions?
