NEW Ten Year Study Raises Red Flags for Cell PhonesHealthy Living
While the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the agency which conducted the study and has delayed its publication a number of times, tried to reassure the public on the findings, the fact remains that most Westerners utilize their cell phones for at least 30 minutes a day and therefore would fall in the category for significantly increased risk.
While more research is certainly warranted, the jury is no longer out on this basic issue. This is a significant study with a significant number of participants from all around the world. The facts can no longer be denied and excused away. Putting these devices up next to your head is dangerous and a game of Russian roulette with your health.
Most cell phone models now offer excellent speaker phones, so there is no longer any need to take any unnecessary risks. There are radiation neutralizing headphones also available. What is everyone waiting for? A warning from the cell phone companies themselves? Fat chance.
