for crying out loud

What is this bullshit.

"WHO: Cell phone use can increase possible risk"

Ignore for now the ridiculous title ("can...possible"). Check out this quote from the report (which I can't find anywhere on WHO's site).

"What microwave radiation does in most simplistic terms is similar to what happens to food in microwaves, essentially cooking the brain. So in addition to leading to a development of cancer and tumors, there could be a whole host of other effects like cognitive memory function, since the memory temporal lobes are where we hold our cell phones."

You hear that? cell phones are cooking your brain. And causing cancer. Even though it's neither intense enough to cook nor an ionizing radiation to break DNA bonds. Please explain how this happens WHO.
