Questions and Answers on the New Study Linking Cellphones and Cancer in Rats

Al's Comment:

 The NY times got it correct.  A lot of other news outlets were reporting that cell phones cause cancer, based on prelimineray results of a study that found 2% of male rats and 0% of female rats exposed to a lot of cell phone radiation developed brain tumors. None of the rats in the control group developed tumors, but in the past, historically with this line of rats, 2% would be expected to develop brain tumors.  That none did in the control group is a simple statistical fluke - it can easily happen that a few less or more than expected develop tumors.  And that is what happened in the treatment group - the expected 2% of males developed it but the females didn't.

The Times pointed out that the incidence of brain tumors in the USA has not gone up over the last 20 years, during a time when cell phone use has grown exponentially. 

My thoughts - there is no reason to give up your cell phones.
