C.D.C. Reverses Stance On Cell Phone Safety Issues

The C-D-C became the first federal agency to acknowledge health risks from cell-phone use on their “frequently asked questions” webpage, but now, they've suddenly backtracked. It was earlier this year the CDC posted an answer to the question: “Do cell phones cause health problems in children?” Their answer was: “It’s too soon to know for sure.” But now, they've changed that to: “It’s not known if cell-phone use by children can cause health problems.” Public interest lawyer Jim Turner believes the changes were triggered either by industry lobbyists, government officials, or both. The agency made other backtracking language changes regarding possible cancer and other health risks from cell phones.
