    1412: IARC’s RF Decision: The Inside Story

    From Louis Slesin, Microwave News:

    Just about every news outlet in the world reported this week
    that an expert panel at the International Agency for Research
    on Cancer (IARC) announced that long-term use of a cell phone
    might lead to two different types of tumors, glioma, a type of
    brain cancer, and acoustic neuroma, a tumor of the auditory nerve.

    Now Microwave News brings you the inside story of what
    happened at the meeting, much of which has yet to be told.

    The decision to designate cell phone radiation a
    “possible human carcinogen” was close to unanimous
    –there were only two holdouts. One was from the
    the U.S. National Cancer Institute.
