    I have believed for many years that frequent use of cell phones is hazardous to a person's health.

    I just got an iPhone but I have never talked on my cell phone very much. I have averaged about five minutes a day over the past three years. I really like texting and using my iPhone as sort of like a mini-laptop.

    Cell phones use the same sort of frequencies as microwave cookers. Maybe they only cook a few brain cells per call but over time . . . .

    The OP premise is flawed, and the EWG even acknowleges that there are problem with the data.

    There are so many millions of cell phones being used, and usage goes back up to 30 years, that one would expect a noticeably higher rate of brain cancers if they were a contributor. JAMA and New England Journal of Medicine have reported on the topic numerous times over the years, and have never found an established connection between cancers and cell phones. Solar radiation is many times that of cell phone radiation, even in an indoor space.

    Maybe losing brain cells doesn't cause cancer, only make people stupider. That could explain much of politics these days. <G>

    If you don't like what I say ignore it! Or, are you like a six year old, always having to say something in return.

    I guess it upsets you to be reminded of just how inept Bush was as president.

    No, it doesn't upset me.

    I find your pointless, inane, off topic posts to be amusing.

    They serve to remind me of the type of intellectual support that the libs/dems have.

    On the contrary, I seldom use my cell phone to talk on. I just enjoy the many applications the I-phone has.

    Why are so caustic? I knew you were joking, as was I in my previous posting. I thought both were funny. :laugh:
