WHO study:mobile use can raise risk of brain cancer

I just read an article about the Inter phone report by the World Health Organization, wherein it has been found that those in the heavy user category(mobile usage of 30 minutes a day) were at a  greater risk of developing brain cancer. An interesting fact is that the  Interphone report is largely funded by the mobile industry.

Do we know and understand the dangers/potential risks  involved in usage of common use instruments & appliances based on radio frequencies or other harmful radiations? Is it not our fundamental right to have a knowledge of these  and is it not the responsibility of the concerned industry & Government to warn us about these risks ?

I think common citizens like us must raise such issues at public forums and create awareness.
