Cell Phone Warnings

A top politician in Maine is calling for a new law that warns citizens against the alleged risk of getting brain cancer.

Scientists still disagree about the accuracy of this claim, that the transmissions from the camera may cause cancer in long term usage.

I'd also like to spread the word to everyone that talking really loudly on your cell phone in public places causes cancer. (I don't know it that's true, but I want to spread it around anyway.)

A Maine legislator wants to make the state the first to require cell phones to carry warnings that they can cause brain cancer, although there is no consensus among scientists that they do and industry leaders dispute the claim. The now-ubiquitous devices carry such warnings in some countries, though no U.S. states require them...
