Do you believe that long-term cell phone use can cause cancer?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on July 24, 2008
“I think there is a high probability that is the case.”
“No, I think there would be a lot more people developing cancer if cell phones were really causing it.”
“I believe it’s a wives’ tale that moms made up to keep their daughters from asking for cell phones.”
“There is no way anyone can tell at this point. Cell phone usage has increased steadily since ‘88, but you don’t see the same trend with cancer rates. The problem is that it could take a long time to cause people cancer, so we won’t really know until later on.”
