Infographic shows cell phone radiation fear is largely overblown
Rumors about cell phone usage causing cancer and other unpleasant side effects turned out to be greatly exaggerated, which doesn't mean there aren't downsides from excessive usage of mobile handsets.

The infographic below aims to display in an easy format the results from the Interphone Study - the largest of its kind, with 13 countries participating - as well as other independent research, like Denmark matching cancer cases with cell phone bills with no direct correlation found between spending hours on the phone and glioma or meningioma cases.

There are other interesting findings from these global cell phone studies, like 65% of people feeling that the devices make them better parents, while a full 32% of us using them while driving, so check out the numbers below.

Also, in order to prevent the cancer risk, one must keep a certain distance between your eyes and the 1080p screen for not less than 30cm, otherwise.... :)

Nothing matters, just to keep the distance of not less than 30cm that's all, it's recommended to let you stay healthy :)

its not about pixels but brightness the more the brightness the more your eyes develop diopters
but still wendy is right about the 30cm(kind of)
less than 30 cm(~1foot) causes more stress to the eyes
everything has that effect from a pc screen to a normal leaf just the effect is different
