Of course the IARC may just be toeing the government/big business/little green men line.

Quote
The 20m euro (£17m) Interphone study, which received some funding from the mobile industry, involved more than 5,000 men and women from 13 countries who had been diagnosed with one of two types of brain cancer - glioma and meningioma - between 2000 and 2004.
These cancers, both rare, were judged to be among the most likely to be influenced by phone use.

[My Bold] - It is a byast report made for the mobile industry.

Re: Shock! Horror! Mobile phones don't cause cancer!!!!!

When mobiles first came on the scene, anytime I was on a bus I could tell if someone was about to receive a text or telephone call because I would get a sharp pain in my brain, just for a few seconds, and then hear the ring tone signaling a message or call. So I have never fully trusted the technology, it doesn't happen nowadays which I reckon is either that the technology has got safer, or my senses have been dulled through the widespread usage of the technology Sad
