Now will this be a balanced  form of reporting or will it be  a sensationalist piece of crap which  these programs are renowned for??

Even if using a cellphone does kill some people, how would the number of people who die as a result of using a cellphone compare to the number of people whose lives were saved as a result of having a cellphone (e.g. drive a car off a cliff, call for rescue)?

I'll get in now to say that the outcome will be:

"There's no definite link, but we should definitely keep looking."

Or some variation of this.
