Dubious Science

BestView has tried to point out scientific malfeasance when it is featured in the media and there is an article I ran across this weekend which deserves our skepticism. It comes out of Europe, but our press will pick it up because it is so sensational. Cell phones cause brain tumors is the claim, but the evidence is not there and the evidence which has been gathered leads to the opposite conclusion. Rather than simply claiming that the small amount of radiation associated with cell phone usage could theoretically produce cancer, the author claims the danger exceeds that of asbestos and smoking. That is almost surely patent nonsense. The greater problem is our school systems have failed us so completely that few will be educated to the point where the claim can be even questioned correctly.
