Pittsburgh Doctor Warns People to Limit Cell Phone Use because of Cancer Risk

Do You Worry About Your Cell Phone Being a Cancer Risk?

Every few months, it seems there's a new study saying that cell phones do or don't cause cancer. Today, they're saying it does. The new study is from a Pittsburgh doctor, warning folks to limit their use because of a possible link between cell phones and cancer.

Dr. Ronald B. Herberman circulated a memo warning that not only are the electromagnetic fields a risk to the user, but cautions people when using phones in a public place, like the bus, so that you don't expose others as well.

I don't want to seem like I'm not taking it seriously or being an alarmist, but what exactly is limited usage? Should we retain our dwindling landlines so we don't have to talk on cell phones at home, or is it chronic gabbers that are at risk? Either way, if I stressed about all the things that might kill me, frankly, I'd die of stress. So for now, I'm going to let it ride. What about you?
