Live Chat: The Cell Phone-Brain Cancer Conundrum

See below for the chat box. Join us each Thursday at 3 p.m. EST for a live conversation with leading scientists and expert reporters.
Today's Topic

Last month, the World Health Organization announced that cell phones might cause brain cancer, a conclusion based on reviewing experiments done in cells, animals, and people. The classification was far from definitive and reflects how tough it is to say whether something causes cancer. But it has far-reaching implications for regulators, the courts, and the general public.

Join us for a live chat at 3 p.m. EDT on Thursday, 16 June, on this page about what the evidence tells us, doesn't tell us, and whether we'll ever have an answer to the cell phone/brain cancer quandary. You can leave your questions in the comment box below before the chat starts.
