D'oh!

I saw the WSJ link and immediately wondered if they'd hacked those cell phones for the information.

Cell Phone Mobile use 'not linked to cancer'

There is no link between the long-term use of a mobile phone and getting brain cancer, research suggests.

Cell Phone Good news! Cellphones don’t cause cancer. Probably

There is no convincing evidence that cellphone use poses a threat to human health, according to an extensive review of scientific evidence released Thursday.

A team of scientists with the UK’s Health Protection Agency analyzed hundreds of peer-reviewed scientific studies on the impacts low-level exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (produced by cellphones and other wireless devices) on humans, animals and cells.

The 348-page review found no “conclusive” evidence that cellphone use causes cancer, infertility or a threat to brain function.
