Cancer Doctor Warns of Cell Phone Risk

Comments Off
A University of Pittsburgh doctor warned university faculty and staff Wednesday that cell phone use may cause increased risk of cancer. In a memo he sent to about 3,000 faculty and staff, Dr. Ronald B. Herberman, director of the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, cited unpublished data in advising children to avoid cell phone use altogether and adults to use speakerphones or wireless headsets. The warning is the first regarding cell phone use by a major academic cancer research facility.
