Meet Power To Give – a new HTC initiative, similar to Samsung's Power Sleep, which uses your smartphone's processing power while you are fast asleep. Wait, what? Yes, the HTC Power To Give initiative will connect a plethora of smartphones together and dedicate a portion of their processing power to solve data, related to important global problems, such as incurable diseases, famine, and climate change. Or even participate in the SETI@home project and help researchers find intelligent alien radio signals...

A 30 year study has shown this is a myth. PA published an article on it about a month ago.

10 plates of microwaved food has a higer percentage of giving you cancer than 1 smarthphones used normally during a 5 years :p. Think about that!

No need to focus on cancer, as the cure is already there, you just need to find out yourself. And the best of all ITS FREE.
thats probaly why nobody talks about it in the news or anything. all those medicin money that the doctors and so on... will never get. Its a greedy world out there...

There's no cure or treatment for cancers other than the methods we currently have. There are sometimes methods of prevention, like not smoking.

There's no conspiracy between doctors hiding the cure for cancer from us. That's a bit silly.

Ok, I got it and use it for a few hours, but not whole night. I turn wifi off when I go to sleep.

Increased heat through sustained usage is good for the manufacturer/OEM.
Being run just under thermal cusp all night when many charge their phones.
Works out to about 5-8 hours of crunching each night on equipment with no active cooling other then software.
Is it, a good idea?

It won't work if you are not charging your phone and above 90% of charge. It doesn't harm anything at all.
