The conclusion: cell phones may be carcinogenic.
I feel the need to step in here and say that enough is enough.
These kinds of reports aren’t adding anything to current knowledge. If anything, they confuse the public more than they benefit them.
The problem is that the WHO comes out with these “Well, maybe” studies over and over again, and they always leave the public hanging.
To say that cell phones are possibly carcinogenic to humans and then not add anything that the public can use is not going to change anything in terms of the manufacturing or regulations of cell phones around the world.
These claims need to be backed up with solid evidence. Tell us specifically that after X amount of exposure time, then there is this much increased cancer risk. For example, if you use your phone more than five hours a day, your risk of developing cancer increases two percent–but this isn’t what the WHO is doing.
In my opinion, they need to give us specific scientific evidence that shows that there is any increased risk of cancer.
Until then, I’ll still be using my cell phone, and so will everyone else, I bet.
