Key Cell Phone Radiation Research Studies

Note: This is not intended to be a comprehensive list. I have focused on more recent papers and tried to be parsimonious. I will update this list periodically.

For additional research studies, see my post, "Should Cellphones Have Warning Labels? (Wall Street Journal)."
