No, Wait - Cell Phones ARE Linked To Cancer Again

This is why I tend not to live my life ruled by the results of "scientific studies". Now we are hearing that cell phones are "linked" to triggering cancer in mice (with some qualifications). Just recently we were informed that no, there is no established link between cell phone use and cancer.

However, it hasn't taken long for researchers to note several problems: the study had a small sample size; irradiated rats lived longer than those that got no dose; the cancers appeared only in male rats; and nobody's proposed a mechanism for the signals to cause the cancers.
There's another oddity that's received less attention: the alleged cancer link is modulation-dependent, it seems.
