You may have heard this debate before, but it’s a topic we all need to stay on top of in case there’s any truth to it.  The question is:  can talking on your cell phone cause cancer?

According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer the radiation in cell phones may cause cancer.

The group came to this conclusion after analyzing 30 previous studies which had explored the link between cell phones and cancer.

As a result of this finding, cell phones have now been given a “2 B” classification by the agency , the same designation given to DDT and gasoline engine exhaust.  (Two things you certainly wouldn’t want to put close to your brain on a regular basis.)

Nevertheless, since none of the studies on cell phones and cancer have tracked people for more than 10 years, some experts question the validity of any reported link between the two.

What do you think?  Will this grim finding have any effect on your cell phone usage?
