I wonder how many of the people freaked out about the possibility of
cancer from cell phones talk (or worse, text) on those phones while
driving.  I don't know you can compare those risks without using a log

Warning people about cancer from cell phones without mentioning the
hazards from not paying attention to things going on around you while
you talk is like warning soldiers about tripping hazards, but forgetting
to mention the land mines.

"WHO: Cell phone use can increase possible cancer risk


according to the World Health Organization. The agency now lists mobile
phone use in the same "carcinogenic hazard" category as lead, engine
exhaust and chloroform.

Before its announcement Tuesday, WHO had assured consumers that no
adverse health effects had been established.
