With this, the question comes up, how will the public respond?

Dr. Ronald Herberman sent out a memo to his entire faculty and staff at the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, stating that it is important to cut down on the use of cell phones.

This comes despite the fact that no scientific research has directly linked cell phone usage to cancer.

Dr. Herberman stated that it is important to keep a cell phone away from your head when using it, and to avoid use of cell phones by a child, as it can harm brain development.

It appears that according to the memo, he seems to believe that soon, scientific research may link cell phone use to health problems.

He stated in the memo, “We shouldn’t wait for a definite study to come out, but err on the side of being safe rather than sorry later.”

The question now comes, how will the public respond? Only time will tell, but in the past it appears these types of warnings have gone ignored for the most part.
