WHO To Look Into Cell Phones
The World Health Organization says they plan to meet next month to look into the radiation levels and cell phones. They are trying to determine whether or not phones and other other wireless devices might cause cancer.
The meeting is set to be held at the International Agency for Research on Cancer. As part of what they will be delving into they plan to review the current studies into the health effects of radiation. They say they are trying to figure out whether or not that can be called a carcinogen.
IARC has published over 100 papers since 1970 on the cancer-causing properties of asbestos, X-rays and the human papillomavirus, among others.
Agency spokesman Nicolas Gaudin, said "scientists are expected to reach a verdict May 31 at the end of an eight-day meeting of scientists in Lyon, France, that starts Tuesday."
