Every other month, it seems, someone else is coming out with some new study with regards to cell phones and whether they may cause cancer.
This past week, The World Health Organization released a report saying it believes radio frequency electromagnetic fields may be a carcinogen and maybe lead to an increased incidence of glioma, a certain brain tumor. The organization placed it in the same classification of lead, DDT, engine exhaust, and chloroform.
Now it seems that everyone is talking or writing about the possible dangers of cell phones, even a Living Large community member, Sheryl Kraft, on her blog, Midlife Matters.
Some scientists even believe that electromagnetic pollution is one of the most threatening things in our environment.
I’ve been a long-time cell phone user. I still even have, somewhere in one of our storage buildings, my first bag phone. Prior to that, I had jobs that also required me to wear a pager.
I guess it is a good thing that although I’ve had pagers and cell phones for over 20 years, I really never talked on the cell phones much.
The reason lies in the same principle that makes me believe microwaves are not good for us: I listened to my body.
