I hope this carries out to other places to raise awareness.I love my smartphone but from past experience of phones that I own,it does get hot after a certain amount of time.

Pembroke Pines is literally 20 minutes away from me. I wouldn't be surprised if at some point they might even say, watching the Barney show may alter a child's brain development and turn them into serial killers.

This is how propoganda starts, actually FDA and a few other Government bodies tend to say things and scare the mess out of most people, then a few years later recant but offer zero apology. I'm sorry this man got cancer, that's never something you want to hear. Isn't it illegal to make unsubstantiated claims such as this though?
Radiation, hmm...considering that the human body emits radiation on it's own, we have more appliances in our homes that bombard us with radiation all day everyday...no one putting out warnings for those as they might cause cancer too. Televisions, microwaves, PC's, light bulbs, laptops, radios anything wireless...the list goes on. The sun is the biggest source of radiation we get hit with on a daily basis. Put a label on that.
Even though I own a cell phone I use less than 50 minutes a month with my phone and it's more used for emergency and internet on the go.
