Cellphone usage health effects?

Asked by argaudette (149points) August 10th, 2008

My parents seem to want to convince me I’m going to give myself brain cancer by talking on my cellphone for about an hour and a half a day, every day. Can anyone give me full details on the truth of this subject?

It actually is possible to develop brain tumors from cell phones, but extremely unlikely.

Well, this guy thinks it’s dangerous.

“The head of a leading US cancer research institute has sent out a warning to his staff to limit their cell phone use because of a risk of developing brain cancer.

In a memo sent by University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute director Dr. Ronald Herbman yesterday, he cautions mobile phone users should not to let a lack of evidence stop them from taking immediate action.

“We shouldn’t wait for a definitive study to come out, but err on the side of being safe rather than sorry later,” he said.

Herbman said his alarm is based on early, unpublished data linking long-term cell phone use with adverse health effects.”
