The WHO/International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B), based on an increased risk for glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer, associated with wireless phone use.
Over the last few years, there has been mounting concern about the possibility of adverse health effects resulting from exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields, such as those emitted by wireless communication devices. The number of mobile phone subscriptions is estimated at 5 billion globally.
The agency now lists mobile phone use in the same "carcinogenic hazard" category as lead, engine exhaust and chloroform."

However it is not as a result of new work, just analysis of older work and given the amount of possiblies and coulds I suspect that they will not have any figures on dose or exposure as they don't know any.

The idea of it being a just in case excuse is possible but neither organisation would likely suffer from any suits, they would all be directed at phone manufacturers and service providers.
