Do Cell Phones Cause Cancer?

  1. 1. Murphy’s Believe It or Not! DO Cell Phones Cause Cancer?
  2. 2. According to the Medical College of Wisconsin: <ul><li>&quot;The epidemiological evidence for an association between radiofrequency radiation and cancer is weak and inconsistent, the laboratory studies generally do not suggest that cell phone radiation has genotoxic or epigenetic activity, and the connection between a cell phone's radiofrequency radiation and cancer appears to be physically implausible.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>-Dr. Moulder </li></ul>
  3. 3. The National Cancer Institute’s research states: <ul><li>“ Although research has not consistently demonstrated a link between cellular telephone use and cancer , scientists still caution that further surveillance is needed before conclusions can be drawn about the risk of cancer from cellular telephones” </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>The United States Food and Drug Administration (U.S.F.D.A.) and the American Cancer Society’s research also conclude that there is no connection between cancer and cell phones. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Wikipedia? Helpful? <ul><li>Surprisingly, wikipedia’s information looks very accurate and their information lines up with the information I found on legitimate websites. The overall conclusion they drew was that cell phones do NOT cause cancer . Nonetheless, studies must wait to research for a longer-term cell phone use. </li></ul>
