Your Cellphone Is Maybe, Probably, Possibly Giving You Cancer

Researchers say there might be a link between cellphone radiation and cancer — a potentially huge finding considering how widespread cellphones are today.
On Thursday, the U.S. National Toxicology Program released partial results from a two-year study on cellphones and rats.
Researchers say the rats in the study developed brain and heart tumors that were "likely the result of whole-body exposures" to radiofrequency radiation, which is the type that cellphones emit.
