Cell Phones: Can They Really Cause Cancer?

Cell Phones: Can They Really Cause Cancer?

In May 2011, the World Health Organization announced that it had added cell phone radiation to a long list of possible cancer-causing agents.

To learn more, we spoke to URMC neurosurgeon and oncologist Dr. Kevin A. Walter, who directs the program for brain and spinal tumors at URMC. In the clip below, Dr. Walter stresses that the WHO classification is only suggesting a theoretical risk, not actual causation. He also says we’d make much better use of our time and resources if we instead focused on other real and rampant health concerns, like heart disease, diabetes or obesity.

    I find it incredibly ironic that many people in the medical community are capable of logical thought and don’t blindly swallow data and studies which have been spread around as though they are facts yet they don’t even realize how they are NOT applying the exact same logic and scrutiny when it comes to the MYTHS which have been perpetuated about obesity. I guess it’s difficult to see when you are prejudiced against something until you have actually had to come fact to face with the cold hard facts for yourself. Truly very sad, especially in a community which proports to want to do good and be intelligent.
