Radio waves from mobile phones harm body cells and damage DNA in laboratory conditions, according to a new study majority-funded by the European Union, researchers said on Monday. Reuters December 20, 2004, 11:21 AM PT The so-called Reflex study, conducted by 12 research groups in seven European countries, did not prove that mobile phones are a risk to health but concluded that more research is needed to see whether effects can also be found outside a lab. The $100 billion a year mobile phone industry asserts that there is no conclusive evidence of harmful effects as a result of electromagnetic radiation. About 650 million mobile phones are expected to be sold to consumers this year, and more than 1.5 billion people around the world use one.

IOW, they did not get the answer they were looking for so they need more money.

I agree, one minute drinking coffee is bad. Then next week they discover some chemical is good for preventing something or other.
The same with red wine. They say it is good for one thing and then later another study says it has not been proven.

Then the general conclusion it always seems is "if used in moderation".......well I suppose that applies to almost everything and it costs millions of dollars to generate this finding!!!

And where does all the $ come from to find out all of this, usually Joe/ Josephine Taxpayer.

Just my thoughts on studies. Nothing with scholarly evidence!!! :thumbsup:
