Another Cell Phone-Cancer Study Emerges 212

oxide7 writes "Since the advent of cellular phones, researchers have pondered whether a connection exists between cell phone usage and brain cancer. New evidence always seems to emerge to support or refute such a link. On Wednesday, another study was added to the list. A European study involving nearly 1,000 participants found no link between cell phone use and brain tumors in children and adolescents. This marks the 3rd study this month and the 4th major one this year, all with different conclusions."

    the money... who pays for the studies?

    FTA: "Since the advent of cellular phones, researchers have pondered whether a connection exists between cell phone usage"

    Ummm, no they haven't. The underlying physics has been known for at least a hundred years and the appropriate experiments to confirm the theory were done to every thinking person's satisfaction long before cellphones even existed.

    Anybody who thinks cell phones might cause cancer has no right to call themselves a "researcher". They're in it for the grant money, book sales and daytime TV appearances.

    For the short-attention-spanners:
    a) Cellphone radiation is made of exactly the same stuff as light.
    b) Visible light is about a million times more energetic (i.e. dangerous) than cellphone radiation.
    c) Visible light doesn't harm anybody (none of these 'researchers' seem worried about visible light, do they?)
    d) Physics predicts that ultra violet light is where the cancer problem begins.
    e) Simple observation confirms point (c) and (d)*
