Of Cell Phones, Coffee, and Pickled Vegetables

Cell phones have been put in the Class 2B by the World Health Organization. This means there’s a possible cancer risk.

Also in the 2B Class of 2011 are these winners:

  • Bracken Fern
  • Caffeine
  • Carpentry and Joinery (well, shit.)
  • Chloroform
  • Chlorine (laundry and pool)
  • Red Dye 9 (eat your M&M's!!)
  • Red Dye 2 (mmmmmm, fruit punch.)
  • Blue Dye 15 (again with the M&M's.)
  • Cobalt
  • Coffee
  • Marine Diesel Fuel
  • Dry Cleaning
  • Engine exhaust from gasoline engines
  • Being a firefighter
  • HIV
  • Human papaloma virus
  • Lead
  • Low frequency magnetic fields
  • Nickel
  • Pickled vegetables
  • Ceramic fibers
  • And a bunch of stuff I can't pronounce.

The moral of the story is this: ANYTHING YOU DO WILL GIVE YOU CANCER.

Have a great weekend.
