Decisions, decicions

do i carry it in front of back pocket?

yes, but not because of radio frequencies (however, I'm not so sure about the first cell phones, those things could have channeled Mars)

rather, I think the lack of human interaction has stunted our social intelligence and has started to decrease our brain usage, reasoning, and thinking skills, causing a whole hoard of issues.

There's a link between cancer and everything else in the world from eating steak to watching TV commercials, so why would you think that holding a strong, high frequency transmitter against your head wouldn't?

The government would protect us from it if they did, wouldn't they?

Anyway, I always think of the ending of the movie "Thank You For Smoking" every time this subject comes up.

Nope, But the TSA is the biggest source of cancer causing ionization radiation. Homeland Security my anus, Homeland cancer cluster.

Butt-cheek cancer? Pywacket, that is hilarious. On a more serious note they are working on perfecting thumb joint replacement. There seems to be speculation that in a few years that may be as popular as knee replacement is now. I am sure by then they will be arguing over what activity really caused damage to the thumb. I can think of a few valid points already.

Hmmmm... Since a lot of cell phones spend less time near an ear than in a pocket, snuggled up next to a gluteus maximus, I wonder if there has been a rise in butt-cheek cancer.

And what about the texting addicted? Are alarming numbers of teens presenting with finger and thumb cancer?

More studies are indicated....

I think it is safe to say that you are MUCH more likely to get killed by distracted driving (fact) than brain cancer (theory).

labmonkey (anonymous) says… It may not cause brain cancer, but Bluetooth earpieces are a major indicator in d-baggitry.

I am well aware that some people don't think much of those who wear Bluetooth earpieces or have much use for cell phones for that matter. Personally I think the biggest indicator of d-baggitry are those people who are incapable of paying attention to what they are doing and should be using a hands free device. I will add to that pile those who are habitually texting while driving.

As far as phones causing cancer, there has to be some concern otherwise they wouldn't have bothered to consider limiting phone frequency to prevent to high of Specific Absorption Rate effecting the user.

We'll find out someday, just like we did with thalidomide, DDT, lead paint, etc.

it matters alot actually. if more people think there is a relationship, then there is. same as everything else... that being said, anybody that thinks holding that much radiation next to your earhole-(which is really really close to your brain)-doesn't cause cancer is a great candidate for my sterlization program (the one where you elect me governor and I pass a law having everyone under an IQ of 100 sterilized for free....this would help society greatly) VOTE PUDDLEGLUM! -better than Brownback!

What difference does it make what people's opinions on this are? There's either a link, however strong, or there isn't. It's not like you get to vote on whether talking on a cellphone will give you cancer or not.
