Good Lord. Cell phones have been around for decades. The early ones were many times more powerful than the ones today. They're used by 100 million people. By now, we'd have statistical evidence. There is none. A non-story.

Show me someone who's a late adaptor when it comes to the best new thinking about health and I'll show you a mainstream M.D.

I'd think you'd report on where his funding comes from, who he's providing "expert" testimony for, follow the $$$$. They're trying hard to put out the knowledge fire, yesterday another industry hack was on NPR trying to pacify. There's a reason cell phone manufacturers put a headset in the box with the phone.

While I agree with the Doctor about this still not being a proven risk, it seems the question needs to be posed to a PHD in Engineering and not a MD. We know the level of radiation that can be tolerated by humans, we just need to measure the cumulative effects.

"But to him, we have our priorities out of whack when we obsess about a "theoretical risk" more than the prosaic dangers that threaten children daily." EXACTLY

Remember the Camel cigarette "T Zone"? http://indymotorspeedway.com/cigs/1950s.html How about "More Doctors smoke Camels..." http://indymotorspeedway.com/cigs/1940s.html
