Cell Phones and Brain Cancer

Well - Debate Over Link Between Cellphones and Cancer Is Revived - NYTimes.com:
"There is no known biological mechanism to explain how non-ionizing radiation might lead to cancer.

But researchers who have raised concerns say that just because science can’t explain the mechanism doesn’t mean one doesn’t exist."
In other words: my blinding, irrational assumption has more credibility than all known biological science, and the variety of short-term studies suggesting I am wrong. We need to act now, on the basis of my irrational assumption, rather than wait for more conclusive long-term studies to bring actual data into the argument.
