You haven't really made it if you carry a cell phone

What the Cell Phone Industry Does NOT Want You to Know

The telecommunication industry is even BIGGER than the drug industry, and they have more influence in Washington.

This is compounded by the fact that a large percentage of retirement funds from several powerful lobbying organizations are invested in telecommunications.

The cell phone industry is doing everything in their power to keep you in the dark about the emerging cell phone research, and the warning signs that wireless communications technologies are not safe.

Meanwhile, government agencies, similar to their stance on tobacco before the evidence became overwhelming, have essentially ignored all the danger signs.

Just like smoking tobacco, they fail to realize that it can take anywhere from 10 to 30 years for brain tumors to develop from cell phone exposure, so we are just now beginning to see some of the tragic effects of heavy cell phone use. The truth is, many believe we are on the verge of a brain cancer epidemic.

Devra Davis, PhD, visiting professor, Georgetown University School of Foreign Service, has written a new book -- Disconnect -- in which she exposes research showing that radiation from cell phones has been linked to:

DNA damage
Memory loss
Alzheimer's disease
Break down of your brain's defenses
Reduced sperm count
But this is all information the cell phone industry does not want you to know.

I pulled this from about cell phones causing cancer. I believe it and always have believed it when people mention it, yet I haven't modified my cell phone use. I guess it doesn't matter what I believe, not even to me. Or does it mean I don't believe it? or do I believe it but am trading potentially being fried by radiation so I can stay in the loop more easily? Are wireless internet hotspots frying me in public and throughout my house all day and all night? I guess the point is that you should grab a pizza and eat it on top of a mountain.

Update: here's a New York Times article on the topic also.
