Isn't the risk of brain cancer pretty low? Doubling a tiny risk isn't going to cause an epidemic of brain cancer, even IF this is true (I'm skeptical).

Incidence and Prevalence

In the United States, the annual incidence of brain cancer generally is 15–20 cases per 100,000 people. Brain cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death in patients younger than age 35.

Primary brain tumors account for 50% of intracranial tumors and secondary brain cancer accounts for the remaining cases. Approximately 17,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with primary cancer each year and nearly 13,000 die of the disease. The annual incidence of primary brain cancer in children is about 3 per 100,000.

Secondary brain cancer occurs in 20–30% of patients with metastatic disease and incidence increases with age. In the United States, about 100,000 cases of secondary brain cancer are diagnosed each year.

It's a magical time to be alive. And my latest cell phone bill was $1.63.

My last bill was: Don't know, haven't seen one in over 17 years.

People pay me to carry a cell phone.

My parents are friends with a former cell phone exec. He keeps his phone away from him and talks through a Bluetooth. Who knows...

I do notice some weird type of muscle memory thing on occasion. Normally I keep mine in a side pocket of my cargo pants (which is pretty much all I wear, if any pants at all) and every now and then I feel a twinge like its vibrating to tell me an email came in but nope, I left the damn thing in the house.

I do also get headaches a lot more often if I actually have to talk on it, however....... :twisted:

Your cellphone is no more likely to hurt you than Mercury leaking out of your fillings.

Cell phones are affecting brains, but in a more insidious way.
