Cell Phones Cancer Risk Reports WHO/IARC What to do?

cellbrain.jpgThe WHO/International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) issued a press release stating that classified radio frequency electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans, based on an increased risk for glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer that is associated with wireless phone use.

They evaluated literature and research and will issue a report.

What is the best solution?

The least risky wireless behavior is to use a wired headset/ear piece or speaker phone.  The next best solution is a Bluetooth headset that is not kept in your ear all the time, according to Dr. Leonard Lichtenfeld of the American Cancer Society during an interview on KPCC.

The other option is to limit your cell phone use and use a landline instead, which would be difficult because many of our readers have given up their landlines and use cell phones exclusively.
