The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer has published what may be a game-changer combined with some fear about the doubt of cell phone usage and it possibly being linked to cancer risks.

Also: “Given the potential consequences for public health of this classification and findings, it is important that additional research be conducted into the long-term, heavy use of mobile phones,” IARC Director Chrisopher Wild said. “Pending the availability of such information, it is important to take pragmatic measures to reduce exposure such as hands-free devices or texting.”
