Housecall for Health: Cancer Risks

Just how should the public be weighing common cancer risks we hear so much about?

FOX's Karlie Pouliot reports in today's "Housecall for Health"...

Audio clip:

FROM COFFEE CUPS TO CELLPHONES, IT SEEMS LIKE WE'RE CONSTANTLY BEING BOMBARDED WITH MESSAGES ABOUT COMMON ITEMS CAUSING CANCER.  BUT EXPERTS SAYS WHAT WE REALLY SHOULD BE WORRIED ABOUT IS INACTIVITY AND THE RISING RATES OF OBESITY.

THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY SAYS MOST EXPOSURE TO ITEMS LIKE CELLPHONES "ARE NOT AT A LEVEL THAT IS GOING TO CAUSE CANCER."  SO USE SOME COMMON SENSE...  IF YOU'RE WORRIED ABOUT CELLPHONES, TALK LESS OR USE A HEAD SET.  AND IF YOU'RE WORRIED ABOUT PESTICIDES ON FRUITS OR VEGGIES, PEEL THE SKIN OFF.
