Cell Today; Tumor Tomorrow

If you use a mobile phone; you now have one more thing in common with the rest of the nearly five billion other people on the planet who have one of the ubiquitous and pretty much indispensable gadgets; a heightened risk of  brain cancer

The World Health Organization (WHO) has released a new study that shows a link between the radiofrequency electromagnetic fields emitted by mobile phones and an increased risk of glioma, a malignant type of brain tumor.

Add that to scientific concerns that radiation from mobile phones may be causing the disappearance of bees we depend on to fertilize food crops worldwide; and we have a recipe for potential global disaster.

So… wait…you mean now I have to choose between brain cancer, global famine and which hot new phone I’m going to pick to replace my old, broken-down Blackberry? 

My brain hurts.
