Re: Do Cellphones Cause Brain Cancer or Don't They?

Last week, I was on CNBC's "The Kudlow Report" discussing the new World Health Organization findings that cellphones may cause brain cancer. Brian Sullivan, the host, asked all sorts of questions about the WHO study and whether this is a major problem for users, companies, investors and the industry. So, do wireless phones cause brain cancer or not? Many researchers are convinced the answer is yes. The industry, however, has answered with a resounding "I don't know." That's where we stand. No one really knows.

. . . there was no study done by the WHO nor past studies evaluated. They were sighting opinions at best. And the "mainstream media" ran with it as the WHO expected them to. The WHO is looking for funding, publicity and today how best to get attention? Make noise by saying things that may or may not have any validity or basis in reality; twitter a photo; have an inappropriate relationship; or just everything else we do. AND with the new revisionism (Republican'ts) being a big part of the clean up of this rampant attention getting world we now have to deal with. If we were to look at the established facts on any of this, all the little meaningless crap that is making such a fuss would be a non-topic.
