      This is something I'm always worrying about, and I think there will be a major public health crisis in a few years due to mobile phones / wifi and all the other radiation from wireless communications.

      What do you lot think? Here's a report I was reading earlier:

      Full article and report : http://www.ewg.org/cellphoneradiation/fullreport

      Here is also their summary of how to use mobile phones safely:

      Ahh you had to mention the Daily Mail :)

      Have a look at this:

      http://kill-or-cure.heroku.com/

      Helping make sense of the Daily Mail's ongoing effort to classify every inanimate object into those that can cause cancer and those that prevent it.

      That said - i have started taking my phone out of my pocket when i'm at home and work!

      My favorates from the "a" section being:

      •Drink a day increases breast cancer risk
      •Strawberry daiquiris can 'help fight cancer'

      and

      •Asprin link to cancer risk
      •Aspirin could stave off cancer and help victims to survive

      Bless 'em - no one tries harder!

      That's right! What happens to your ear after using your cell phone for more than 30 minutes? Your ear starts to burn or warm up. This burning or warming is caused by RADIATION! Yes, cell phones emit tremendous amounts of radiation which literally eats up your brain cells.
