	Dr. Ronald B. Herberman, director of the University of Pittsburgh Cancer 
Institute has sent a warning to about 3000 faculty and staff warning them 
to limit their cell phone use because the phones may cause cancer.


	The article, from Associated Press, is reasonable and notes that a great 
deal of research and studies has shown no connection between cell phone 
usage and brain cancer.  According to the article, Devra Lee Davis was a 
"driving force" behind Herberman's memo.   In November 1994, a consortium 
of left-wingers held a seminar in Albuquerque wherein they attempted to 
blame most cancers (and especially breast cancer) on radiation and on 
chlorine.  Davis was an invited speaker at this seminar.  (I attended it, 
and heard her speak.)
