Cell phones linked to Brain Cancer

So after all of these years they have finally admitted that our cell phones actually emit enough radiation to give us glioma a form of malignant brain tumor. The World Health Organization reports that this is now true. What do you think? Should they now put warning labels on cell phones? Warning: Cell Phones cause cancer.

  • The WHO report is not conclusive , the connection is rather tenuous and more research is needed , but yes, cell phone users would be well advised to keep the things a distance away from their ears and not pressed against the side of the head.  The real danger is to children and young people whose systems are much more vulnerable to electro-magnetic radiation as the bone formation in the skull has not fully developed .  I am pleased now that we refused to let our daughters have cells . i have one but I don't use it much.

    Almost anything can be a health hazard with overindulgence and teens eapecially who seemingly have cells bolted to their ears are likely at greatest risk .  Just as loud music can lead to them experiencing hearing loss at an ealy age .

  • Right but you don't put a microwave up to head daily. Lol! Also says its happening more to kids and teens because of the amount of time spent on the phone and there skull isn't as thick as an adult.

  • It just hits close to home since I had a brain tumor. Benign but had to have surgery twice and radiation to get rid of it.

  • Its VERY SCARY how toxic our enviroment is & we are not doing something about it.. I just watched "Homo Toxicus" today... If you have netflix you should look it up..

    Cell phones are just a small part of it all...

    I am a BIG supporter of breastfeeding, but sadly because of all the chemicals we put into our bodies, one day nursing may be deemed TOXIC for our babies. And if we keep going, our womb may become too dangerous as well! I feel today we are putting the future at risk for the safety of 'now'... (we put fire retardants in our clothes to help keep kids safe--- but it may be causing cancer later in life)
