Possibly. Will that change people’s usage? 5 billion cell phones are in use today. It’s going to take a lot more than “possibly” for people to run out and buy a Bluetooth®. And those are practically attached to your head. How healthy can that be? There are conflicting results when it comes to the Bluetooth®.
I loathe cell phones. I don’t have one, and I refuse to get one. Even if I have one, it would probably be off. I hardly answer my land line at home. No one needs to get a hold of me that badly. The way people use cell phones now, they can’t believe how we got along without them in the past. We survived. Miraculously. There were pay phones and emergency phones on the highways. People have asked, “What about an emergency?” Well, what about it? What if you get stuck on a road, and you can’t get a signal for your phone? You’d be in the same situation as I would be. Looking for a pay phone. I won’t be the one freaking out though. 🙂
I have accepted that cell phones are part of life today. I don’t think you should be that worried about cancer. You can always get that Bluetooth®, or do what my mom does – put everyone on speaker phone. The latter might kill you because the one you’re talking to might get homicidal. Whenever my mom calls me from her cell phone, the first words out of my mouth are, “Take me off speaker.” It makes this annoying echo that confuses the hell out of me.
Anyway, the article states, “the ‘possibly carcinogenic’ category also includes substances such as pickled vegetables and coffee.” When you look at it that way, I don’t think you have much to worry about.
So many things we ingest and expose ourselves to can cause cancer. I can hardly keep up. Here’s a list of the Top 10 Foods that Increase Cancer Risk I consume 5 of the 10 regularly. I don’t really care. I’m not going to change because some of those foods are ones that I absolutely love. My motto: Eat right, exercise regularly, die anyway.
The cancer you will possibly get from your cell phone is nothing compared to the cancer I will probably get from all that delicious, dangerous food.
Talk away, and I’ll eat away.
