(CNN) -- Radiation from cell phones can possibly cause cancer, according to the World Health Organization. The agency now lists mobile phone use in the same "carcinogenic hazard" category as lead, engine exhaust and chloroform.
Before its announcement Tuesday, WHO had assured consumers that no adverse health effects had been established.
A team of 31 scientists from 14 countries, including the United States, made the decision after reviewing peer-reviewed studies on cell phone safety. The team found enough evidence to categorize personal exposure as "possibly carcinogenic to humans."
Computer image comparison of the heads of adults and children demonstrates that cell phone radiation penetrates younger skulls far more deeply than those of adults.
This groundbreaking scientific study was conducted in 1996 by Dr. OM Ghandhi, Ph.D, a highly respected scientist at the University of Utah.
A respected international panel of scientists says cellphones are possible cancer-causing agents, putting them in the same category as the pesticide DDT, gasoline engine exhaust and coffee. Source:above link
