WASHINGTON, June 1, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today's media hoopla about the World Health Organization classifyingcell phone use as "possibly carcinogenic" is much ado about nothing. The studies the WHO relies on are weak association studies (link here: http://tinyurl.com/3to2prw) that have zero reliability.
Most epidemiologic studies report no link between cell phone use and cancer. That some do is no surprise just by chance some will. That all the studies basically bracket the no-effect level indicates that cell phone use poses no cancer risk.
Milloy continued, "The fact that the WHO panel was led by Jonathan Samet is yet another red flag of junk science.
"Hundreds of millions have used cell phones for decades without any detectable health effects. Before that, studies of military radio operators reported no ill effects from more intense exposures to radio frequency waves.
"The bottom line is that the WHO classification is a political judgment not a scientific outcome one that was no doubt pushed by grant-grubbing cell phone researchers and cheered on by the tin foil hat crowd, " Milloy concluded.
