Doctor plans study of cell users, cancer risks

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, July 30, 2008
Following a groundbreaking advisory on the potential risks of cell phone use, the director of the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute and UPMC Cancer Centers plans to develop a research project focusing on long-term cell phone users. Ronald Herberman, MD, hopes to obtain cell phone records from companies or customers to try to better identify long-term users who might especially be at risk for health problems. Herberman is holding discussions with others about the project, including a researcher at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, and doctors at the Pitt cancer institute's Center for Environmental Oncology.
