The Flip Flopping Mobile Phone Safety Reports

Safe or not? I’ve been avoiding posting the widely reported story of a new UK study saying that mobile phones don’t pose a radiation threat because, come on, every few months there’s a new study saying the opposite thing. And, every one of these studies hedges their bets by saying “more research needs to be conducted”. In other words no one has any idea how safe or dangerous these things are no matter what anyone says – and no one is going to change their behavior because of any of these studies. Carlo Longino over at TheFeature does a good job complaining about the constant flip-flopping and asking when will we no longer “need more research” on this topic?
