The “C” word is used for almost everything now. It appears that anything we do now causes cancer. New studies suggest we may need to add cell phones to the list of cancer causing products. We soon will have to just sit in our home and do absolutely nothing to protect ourselves. Oh wait, we may have radon in our house so that would not work either.
This week, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, has not really concluded that cell phones lead to brain cancer, but they said, “we need to keep a close watch for a link between cellphones and cancer risk.” But if you watched the news, they made it seem as though it is a definite. Let’s all toss our phones!
Over the past decades, it seems that everything eventually is linked to cancer. The vegetables we eat cause cancer. Microwave ovens cause cancer. Eating excessive amounts of meat causes cancer. The sun causes cancer. If this is the case, why have they not yet found a cure?
What is most frustrating is that they continuously release reports about cancer causing items, to later retract their findings. Why not wait until the results are conclusive before causing a massive scare? Is this designed to keep us all on edge and in fear for eternity? Or under control?
What do you think?
