Division of World Health Organization (WHO) finds cell phones are 'possibly carcinogenic to humans'This story comes from the International Agency for Research on Cancer....The agency is the cancer arm of the World Organization and the assessment now goes to WHO and national health agencies for possible guidance on cellphone use.

The criminal aspect of this story is the fact that W.H.O., the American Cancer Society, American Lung Association, and many other organizations who lobbied for smoking bans (because they were paid to do so by the makers of Nicoderm /RWJF) knew that the relative risk ratio of developing cancer from cell phone use was 3.0. Meanwhile the legislation they were paid to promote, smoking bans, had a far less hazardous relative risk ratio....the relative risk ratio of developing cancer from secondhand smoke is 1.3.
In fact both the World Health Organization and the American Cancer Society have clearly stated that relative risk ratios below 2.0 are too low to be relied upon. And a report by the independent health consulting firm Littlewood and Fennell characterized risk ratios (RR) less than 2.0 as “dancing on the tiny pinhead of statistical insignificance."
So developing cancer from cell phones is 2.3 times more likely than developing cancer from secondhand smoke.....yet nobody has called for a ban on cell phones. Which further highlights just how unnecessary smoking bans are......especially in light of the fact that smoking bans have decimated the hospitality industry and our economy. More here:
