600 Studies on Cell Phone Safety and Counting

15-hour-per-day cell phone habit.

Link to September 13 cnet news post, "Are cell phones safe? Researchers still uncertain".

Excerpt: The question over whether cell phones pose a health risk has been debated for years, and researchers say the final answer could still be years away.

Since the wireless industry first began, there have been fears that cell phones could be harmful to your health. And even though some 600 studies have been conducted on the health effects of cell phone use, results have been conflicting.

Several reputable organizations, including the World Health Organization and the National Cancer Institute, say there's no conclusive evidence that using cell phones can harm your health. While other independent research indicates a link between health problems and cell phone use.

I don't have time to study the research, but I still can't help but wonder how "independent" some of the research is.
