Cancer threat? The danger may be far from real
Posted by PSingh on 17 June 2011
NEW YORK: You're sitting in a freshly drywalled house, drinking coffee from a plastic foam cup and talking on a cellphone. Which of these is most likely to be a cancer risk? It might be the sitting, especially if you do that a lot.
Despite all the recent news about possible cancer risks from cellphones, coffee , styrene, and formaldehyde in building materials, most of us probably face little if any danger from these things with ordinary use, health experts say. Inactivity and obesity may pose a greater cancer risk than chemicals for some people.
"We are being bombarded" with messages about the dangers posed by common things in our lives, yet most exposures "are not at a level that are going to cause cancer ," said Len Lichtenfeld, the American Cancer Society's deputy chief medical officer.
Last month, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, part of the World Health Organization, said there is a possibility cellphones raise the risk of brain tumors. "The operative word is 'possibility,'" said Lichtenfeld.
Known carcinogens include alcoholic beverages, estrogen treatments for menopause symptoms and birth control pills.
Here's the problem: The agencies that pass judgment on a carcinogen don't regulate it or determine what levels or routes of exposure are a concern and for whom.
