For distribution:

The last line is ''However, no studies have yet produced evidence that it can cause cancer.''

Really? What about the following evidence:

We have evidence that cell phone use is associated with cancer (even in the flawed INTERPHONE study).

We have evidence that microwave radiation causes DNA breaks in rat brains and in sperm.

We have evidence that 2.4 GHz (used in some cordless phones and Wi-Fi) causes primary tumours in rats (U.S. Air Force Study 1992)

We have evidence that this radiation increases the permeability of the blood-brain barrier, enabling potentially toxic chemicals to enter the brain.

We have evidence that it is associated with an increase in the enzyme ornithine decarboxylase that is linked to cancer.

We have evidence that it increases free radicals that can cause cancer.

We have evidence that it increases stress proteins and compromises the immune system.

Indeed, we have epidemiological studies, in vivo studies, and in vitro studies (the three key types of scientific evidence) that microwave radiation below FCC guidelines is associated with AND causes cancer and that the mechanisms involve some combination of free radical production, increased membrane permeability, DNA fragmentation and a compromised immune system.

We also have evidence that some reporters (see below) do not read the science and make statements that are scientifically incorrect.

GAO: FCC should reassess its advice on cell phone radio frequency limits

eWeek

08/08/12

The Government Accountability Office is advising the FCC to reconsider its standards regarding acceptable levels of radio-frequency energy that cell phone users can be exposed to. Questions about whether smartphones and the radio-frequency energy they emit can cause health problems in users were the impetus for an investigation by the Government Accountability Office. What it found was that the Federal Communications Commission s current RF guidance doesn t reflect the latest research and that testing requirements may not identify the possible maximum exposure in some use cases...
