It's nice now, and a complement to common sense and science that we see these reports.

Reasons for concern
Hang on to your land line phones. Herb Denenberg in an article for The Bulletin says: “The great cell phone cover-up may be coming to an end. A new report may finally wake the public up to the brain cancer risks of cell phones and force necessary preventive measures.
“A new report, endorsed by a prestigious group of international scientists, finds that there’s a risk of brain tumors from cell phone use, that industry studies underestimate this risk, and that children have much greater risk than adults. The report, therefore sends a message to four billion users worldwide and to the $4 billion cell phone industry that they may be facing the same kind of bad news that first burst on the scene for the tobacco industry.”
Mr. Denenberg was elected to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences, and co-authored major legislation.
He goes on to point out that the cancer threat has been recognized by some scientists for decades. Cell phones emit electromagnetic radiation — more specifically, radio frequency radiation which can damage the DNA and lead to cancers or other medical problems.
The study focused on cell phones but cordless phones, talkies, ham radio transmitters, and baby monitors also are sources of radiation.
The report entitled “Cell phones and Brain Tumors: 15 reasons for Concert; Science, Spin and the Truth behind enterphone,” can be read at www.radiationresearch.org and will be updated. The report lists eight simple steps to substantially reduce your or your children’s exposure to cell phone radiation.
