Re: Do Cell Phones Cause Cancer or Specific Health Problems? Too soon to tell. There is no clear link yet, but that kind of thing can take awhile to show up statistically. Here's a very good article about this, and question #5 is aimed at your concern about conflicting information:
Remember that brain and other cancers that could eventually be linked to cell phone use are not common cancers (breast, prostate, and lung cancer are), so an increased incidence in brain cancers 20 or 30 years after the promulgation of digital cell phones might amount to a few thousand more people in the US developing these cancers each year. Hardly any consolation if you're one of the unlucky ones, but on the other hand, you may be willing to take the added risk because chances remain good that it won't affect you (or never even show up).
Media reporters who will admit to statistical cluelessness tend to overhype things like CANCER RISK LEAPS BY 25% and lose sight of the bigger picture. (Oh, wait, how many people are we talking about? 4000 then, 5000 now. Oh.)
