Cell phone radiation not dangerous, says largest peer review to date

0. phoneArena 26 Apr 2012, 02:49 posted on

There is "no clear evidence" about harmful effects of the radiowaves your cell phone is emitting to your health, says the largest review of published research to date. Scientists sifted through the numerous studies that have been completed since the dawn of mobile, and couldn't spot conclusive evidence about brain tumors, low sperm count, or any other dreadful consequences from using a cell phone or just carrying it in your pocket, though many of those have been bandied around numerous times...

Still sceptical @ this stage .If I was using phone for calls I would prefer a blue tooth device next to my ear.

Sigh...of course it's not dangerous - cell phones don't emit ionizing radiation. Seriously, anyone with two years of college physics courses should know this; the fact that it continues to get press releases in the media is more a testament to how anything can make its way into public discussion.

If people think the heat on your scalp could be damaging somehow, fine, but it's literally physically impossible for cell radiation to cause cancer - it's just not that type of radiation.

Text while driving, on the other hand, is a well-known cause of death, but not due to cancer.

Daniel did a good job writing up the contents of the report - I just was commenting on the issue in general.

Indeed. If there was any validity to these ridiculous claims,there would be an epidemic of cancers and tumors in cell phone users. They've been around for what,20 or 30 years now? But as you mention,our joke of a media will throw anything into prime-time to sell advertising,no matter how preposterous.
