Supports my stance that the further technology goes the more waves are passing through our bodies and the higher cancer rates.

It sucks, but cellphones have become a pretty important part of everyday life. I don't really spend much time talking on the phone during the day though. I'm more worried about getting ball cancer from it always being in my pocket.

the article shouldn't be anything to new to anyone who has at least taken a basic biology class. also, just like w/ big tobacco, the massive lobbying power of telecom companies and cell mfrs will ensure that people continue to remain unaware of this issue.

Forgot what magazine I read it in but theres also counter-proof to this article that cell phones may actually reduce your risk of various types of brain cancer. Can't remember where I read it though.

I don't buy into most of this shit because they change their minds every 5 years with new research.

Everything is bad for you these days. I've stopped listening and being influenced by these stupid, ridiculous studies. . .
