    Cell phone radiation? Tumors and Cataracts.

    What do you think about the safety of cell phone radiation? One guy in our office had a brain tumor and another has gotten cataracts. Both have been using mobile phones since they were car mounted. Brain cancer is up 25% in the last ten years particularly in 20-29 year olds.

    How concerned are you that a phone could be harming you? It doesn't seem to be discussed much. Are we in denial? Is this Agent Orange all over?:dft008:whoa

    your TV and pc monitor put out much more radiation than the cell phone. Seems most young adults are glued to either/both.

    people don't seem to worry about radio towers, that transmit over much longer ranges.

    Well actually base jumpers (skydiver) can only stay a few minutes at the top of a transmission tower before all the metal they are carrying heAts up and they begin to get ill from the power. Lasers don't consume much power but are also very dangerous. I'm just pondering the possibilities and curious how others view it. IE a joke a concern a danger a death wish? Handsfree laws may be solving two problems. Distraction and direct skull rfi exposure.

    There was an episode on mythbusters where they tested the theory of cell phones hazards while pumping gas. Their conclusion: BUSTED!

    Atrazine is prolly more dangerous than cell phone radiation.

    Well, some folks have been warning of the dangers of this ever since Arthur Ashe died. But, we eat more junk food, exercise less, eat more sugar, eat more red meat, are exposed to moe chemicals, etc. Who's to say that it was the SAR value being 0.02 (as an example) above some rather arbitrary set limit based on limited testing that caused little Johnny's brain tumor. He might have got the same tumor 50 years ago and it wouldnt have been detected and eventually he'd have died from an annurysm or hematoma. I think the direct and irrefutable evidence linking cell phones to increased rates of anything is limited. Are cancer rates really up or are detection rates really up?

    Good point Bob. A hundred years ago no one died of cancer. It was called consumption.

    I think it's more of the "American way" of life catching up with us.

    I also think EQbob made a good point. Years ago many things were never diagnosed. Another thing to consider is we have more people now. So of course thenumbers may be higher depending on how they crunch the data.
