The Argument

Although the health risks associated with cell phones are debated by various proponents, the organizations which are formally responsible for providing expert opinions about public health issues have not adopted definitive positions on safety or danger of cellular technology, instead recommending caution and further study. Among others, the World Health Organization, the U.S. National Cancer Institute, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have all made public statements that more research is essential to clarify the relationship between cancer and cell phones. The positions of these expert organizations can be regarded as a strong indication of the current scientific and medical consensus, which is that the risks associated with cell phone use are still unclear.
