Holy ****!

This article in IHT just caught my eye. I mean, not a week after that lovely article from Slovenian philosopher whose name I forget, something like this turns up and necros a completely worthless study. For those who hadn't followed the cellphone-brain cancer hoohah, here's the long story short:

- Cell phones emit non-ionizing radiation.
- Non-ionizing radiation is too weak to cause cell damage of the type that causes cancer.
- Cell phones have sodall to do with cancer.

And then this genius of a reporter (Tara Parker-Pope) comes up with:

"But researchers who have raised concerns say that just because science can't explain the mechanism doesn't mean one does not exist."

And what, pray tell, do those researchers suggest as a mechanism? Gnomes? If there's new evidence, just say so. Don't make up meaningless bullcrap to defile the name of science.
