Cell Phones

"I think the Precautionary Principle applies.  If the consequences of an action concerning the use of technology are unknown, but are possibly highly negative, then it is better to limit exposure rather than risk the uncertain, but possibly very negative, consequences.

In my opinion, the ACS (American Cancer Society) has insulted the thinking public and done a disservice to honest scientists who are trying to study the possible link of EMF exposure and cancer.  The issue is hugely important.  Cell/mobile phone use has doubled since 2000, and at present there are 1.5 billion subscribers worldwide."

"In sum, we found that conversing on either a hand-held or hands-free cell phone led to significant decrements in simulated driving performance."

Do Radiofrequency Energy Fields Cause Cancer? Part One
"Dr. Gansler points out that while ionizing radiation such as gamma rays and X-rays can increase cancer risk by causing changes to DNA in cells of the body, low frequency, non-ionizing radiation [such as that emitted by cell phones, ed.] does not cause these DNA changes.

This statement, as far as it goes, is true.  However, direct damage to the DNA is not the only way in which harm could be done.  Dr. Gansler ignores the possibility that exposure to radiofrequency energy might bring about damage indirectly, through subtle physiological effects on cellular functions.  It has been established, for example, that radiofrequency electromagnetic fields can induce a wide variety of physiological changes in cell membranes, signaling pathways, cell growth cycle regulation, and other metabolic processes within the cell."

Do Radiofrequency Energy Fields Cause Cancer? Part Two
"The bottom line is this: almost all reputable researchers in this area concede that it is really not yet definitively known whether or not radiofrequency electromagnetic fields do increase the risk of cancer.  Some people take this as confirmation of their view that such devices are safe.  But one would think that while the issue is still very much under investigation it would be wisest for the ACS not to brand concern about RFEMF prematurely as just another "cancer myth."  It seems to me to be arrogant to declare the debate closed while the near unanimous opinion in the scientific world is that the issue is still far from settled."

Do Radiofrequency Energy Fields Cause Cancer? Part Three
"While it is far from clear that there is a cause and effect relationship between cell phones (or RFEMF in general) and cancer, too little is known about the actual effects to dismiss the possibility out of hand, the way the ACS does.  Caution would therefore be advised. History is filled with examples of "perfectly safe" environmental factors that later turned out to be harmful, if not disastrous."
