I Believe!

Look at those roaming charges incurred when you called me from on board the mother ship..."

From the Did Robert Novak Have a Cell Phone? file:

(AP) -- The head of a prominent cancer research institute issued an unprecedented warning to his faculty and staff Wednesday: Limit cell phone use because of the possible risk of cancer.
The warning from Dr. Ronald B. Herberman, director of the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, is contrary to numerous studies* that don't find a link between cancer and cell phone use**, and a public lack of worry by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration***.

Herberman is basing his alarm on early unpublished data****. He says it takes too long to get answers from science and he believes people should take action now - especially when it comes to children.

*Sponsored by the Cell Phone Alliance of America
**Ever wonder what happened to those scientists who said studies linking cancer and smoking were inconclusive and flawed? Well, now you know. They got new jobs. Good for them.
***Who are also not worrying about lead in toys or Mad Cow disease, because, hey, it's an election year.
****That will mysteriously never come to light after his untimely suicide by jumping off a cell phone tower. Hmmmm....
