Do cell phones, bacon and coffee cause cancer?

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) is being challenged on its pronouncements that carcinogens (cancer-causing agents) found in bacon, emitted by cells phones and even found in a cup of coffee cause cancer.

One of the common errors used in calculating cancer risk is portraying chemicals are carcinogens when they only pose such a problem when airborne and get into the lungs.  Silicone dioxide, an excipient used in pill making, is an example. [Daily Mail UK Oct 6, 2016]
