What is the Real Cancer Threat from Cell Phones?
May 27, 2010
The U.S. President’s Cancer Panel has reported that “the true burden of environmentally induced cancers has been grossly underestimated.” The panel pointed to cell phones and other wireless technologies as potential causes of cancer.
In its recommendations, the panel stated:
“Methods for long-term monitoring and quantification of electromagnetic energy exposures related to cell phones and wireless technologies are urgently needed given the escalating use of these devices by larger and younger segments of the population and the higher radiofrequencies newer devices produce.”
Dr. Ted Schettler, director of the Science and Environmental Health Network, said
“... Even if cell phones raise the risk of cancer slightly, so many people are exposed that it could be a large public health burden.”
