Maine on the verge of voting on a bill seeking brain cancer labels on cell phones
Remember the news about how a Maine lawmaker was seeking to have brain cancer warning labels placed on cell phone packages a little while ago? Well it seems that the time is almost here before a vote on that bill will ultimately decide the fate of it in the great state of Maine – which of course is being quite proactive versus some other ones. The Health and Human Services Committee had a hearing surrounding the hot topic and will seemingly review the bill next week. David Carpenter, a Harvard Medical School researcher and director of the Institute for Health and Environment, said "We can do nothing and wait for the body count. That's what happened with smoking." The hot debate of whether or not there is a direct correlation between brain cancer and the unseen forces at work behind wireless cell phones will climax soon enough with a final determination being made regarding the matter. Then again, there was that study not too long ago that saw cell phone radiation being used to treat Alzheimer's disease in mice. As usual, there's always two sides to every story.

WOW!!! That guy is stating cell phone usage is as harmful as smoking... "we can do nothing and wait for the body count. That's what is happening with smoking." And he went to Harvard!!! That just seems so stupid to me, sorry if no one agrees. But seriously that is lame...
