Radiation from cell phones can possibly cause cancer, according to the World Health Organization. The agency now lists mobile phone use in the same "carcinogenic hazard" category as lead, engine exhaust and chloroform.

Before these findings the World Health Organization (WHO) had assured consumers that no adverse health effects had been established with cell phone use.

A team of 31 scientists from 14 countries, including the United States, made the decision after reviewing peer-reviewed studies on cell phone safety. The team found enough evidence to categorize personal exposure as "possibly carcinogenic to humans." Tune in Wednesday June 20, 2012, at 7:PM for the Aging Younger show to find out more.
