WHO Says Cell Phones Could Be Carcinogenic Last year, the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer, IARC, spent $24 million to study cell phone use. Its conclusion was that there was no increased risk of brain cancer. But yesterday, that same organization said review of other available evidence suggests there might be a link after all. Scientists are sharply divided. We look for a common sense path through contradictory findings.
Cell Phones and Cancer: Is there a Connection? The International Agency for Research on Cancer, an agency of the World Health Organization, produced scary headlines yesterday by warning that cell phone radiation might cause brain cancer. Tentative as it is, that suggestion contradicts the IARC's own $24 million study of a year ago, as well as the FDA and scientists who claim it's physically impossible. Everybody agrees more research is needed, but five billion people have taken to cell phones in less time than it takes many cancers to develop and grow. Will the WHO issue new guidelines? Should users take precautions on their own? We hear some conflicting opinions.
Janesville and the American Dream Janesville, Wisconsin is the hometown of Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan. But he couldn’t prevent the closing of the General Motors factory after 100 years. On this Memorial Day rebroadcast of To the Point, we hear what’s happened to what once was a model of American middle-class unity.
Trump plays scolder-in-chief with NATO allies At the opening of NATO’s dramatic new headquarters in Brussels today, President Trump acknowledged that Article 5 — promising that “an attack on one nation is an attack on all” -- has only been invoked one time: in the aftermath of September 11. But the President failed to provide what 27 other Alliance members have been waiting for: a re-commitment by America’s new leader to Article 5. Instead, they got a scolding.
The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement. With James Comey’s public testimony scheduled tomorrow, the President today tweeted his selection of a new FBI Director. Is the Chief Executive all style and no substance? Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
