Fox News

Doctors David Samadi and Marc Siegel of the FOX News Medical A Team discuss the controversial topic of whether or not cell phone usage can increase a person's chance of contracting cancer.

According to Dr. Samadi, 31 scientists from around the world have stated that there may in fact be an elevated cancer risk for people making heavy use of cell phones. While no conclusive evidence currently exists, he reminds that when cigarettes were first on the market, we did not have conclusive studies linking them to cancer either. He continues to outline some basic precautions that can help minimize the potential risks of cell phone usage. Among these, he lists using hands-free headsets, texting more often than calling, and keeping the handset a full inch away from your head when making a call.

Dr. Siegel was quick to point out however, that there are no solid links between cell phone usage and cancer at this time and that much more research is required before any conclusions can be drawn. Recent studies have shown no increase in cases of brain cancer since the advent of the cellular phone.

Holy and Rick, USA

My Husband Rick was diagnosed with prostate cancer right before Christmas 2010. He was diagnosed at the same age that his father was but his father lost his battle with cancer at age 56. I was not ready to be a widow nor my children fatherless so I needed to find the best doctor on the face of this earth.
