Cancer Center in Pittsburgh Warns of Cell Phone Risks
By Paul Fitzgerald 

The head of a prominent cancer research institute, Dr. Ronald Herberman, issued an unprecedented warning to his faculty and staff 
Limit cell phone use because of the possible risk of cancer.

The warning from Dr. Ronald B. Herberman, director of the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, is contrary to numerous studies that don't find a link between cancer and cell phone use.

Dr. Herberman is basing his alarm on early unpublished data. He says it takes too long to get answers from science and he believes people should take action now especially when it comes to children.cancercenterpittsburgh-tachyon-2-.jpg

"Really at the heart of my concern is that we shouldn't wait for a definitive study to come out, but err on the side of being safe rather than sorry later," Herberman said.

In the memo he sent to 3,000 faculty and staff Wednesday, he wrote, "Children should use cell phones only for emergencies because their brains are still developing." He further went on to say, "Adults should keep the phone away from their head and use a speakerphone or a wireless headset." He further warns against using cell phones in public places like a bus because it exposes others to the phone's electro-magnetic fields.
