After talking to Dr. Joel Moskowitz, an expert on cell phone radiation, Andrew Geller of KBOO News had to contact the CDC for an explanation.

According to Andrew Geller, on June 9th a FAQ page on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website regarding cell phones and human health was changed. The changes didn’t involve a lot of text, but the significance was profound.

The revised page stated, in response to the question “Can using a cell phone cause cancer?” that “Along with many organizations worldwide, we recommend caution in cell phone use.” No other US government body had previously issued a precautionary statement regarding cell phone use. So Andrew decided to contact the CDC and ask why to the reversal. He got a chance to talk to Kathy Harben, a Public Affairs Specialist with the CDC.
