Cell Phones and Brain Cancer

As Dr. Gupta writes, it's too early to tell if cell phone exposure contributes to the incidence of brain cancer. It takes something like 20 years of exposure before a tumor would likely develop.

Still, not having to worry about it myself (I use my cell phone maybe one or two minutes over 3 months) I still think it would be fun to see the expression on many people's faces if science did conclude there is a direct link. I'll be there'd be a lot of you looking like you just found out you had unprotected sex with someone who has AIDS.

There's a lot of research about EM radiation causing tumors, not just cell phones. Radiation is bad to living tissue. We deem certain exposure levels safe because the effects in low doses may not be measurable, and we do receive regular low level dosing by simply being in nature. Cell phones aren't natural though.

When choosing a cell phone, select one with low radiation output that can be bluetoothed or used with a headset. Cell phone radiation levels can be found online.

So if it takes a long time (approximately twenty years) for tumors to develop, thus making it difficult to determine if a cell phone contibutes to brain cancer................. how is it that opponenets to smart meters already know they cause cancer????
