Erm wasnt this news like 5 years ago ?.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1399753


It's been figured out many times before,
the industry usually squashes the news and
continues as if nothing happened.



In the year 2000- the "The leading cellular industry trade group" had ordered wireless phone makers to tell the public how much radiation their phones emit.

As you can see, that never happened.
Why? Because, shut up, it isn't a concern.

July 18th 2000

From now on cellular users will be told the amount of radiation emitted by their phones.

The leading cellular industry trade group, the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA), has ordered wireless phone makers to tell the public how much radiation their phones emit.

Beginning Aug. 1, the information, known as Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), will be printed on cell phone boxes and also in instruction booklets.

The issue of whether cell phones cause cancer has been hotly debated for years by the scientific community, in the courts and in the governmental agencies responsible for public health issues.

Various cellular phone makers have been sued for allegedly causing health problems. But no such case against a cell phone maker has prevailed.

More than 82 million Americans use cell phones, according to CTIA.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1407624


Yeah, I've known about this for years and only very carefully use cellphones, and then to only a very minimum (no call lasting more than 60 seconds using a corded headset/microphone with the phone on the table at least 2 feet from me) but that's just because I hate phones in general and always have even before cell phones (old enough to remember the world before they existed).

That being said, in response to the quote snipped I left in my post, I'm glad it's only 82-100 million people (provided that number is remotely accurate, which it may not be). Our population is currently around 320 million. That would be less than a third of the country in the primary risk categories...the other two-thirds of us are still exposed to cell-phone towers and wifi every day...but I would rather think of myself as a glass half full kind of guy,

Yeah like they used to say cigarettes may possibly cause cancer. Now they just admit you will get cancer if you smoke. Same thing with cell phones they'll have to start putting warning labels on cell phones in the future.

if cellphones can cause cancers then sitting

is probably equally another high risk factor

Glad I don't use a bluetooth.

#imjustsaying
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1110473


Bluetooth headsets are much safer than holding the phone to your head; it's a short-range technology that uses much lower power than the phone itself, so can significantly reduce radiation hazard. It's also much safer while driving.

Another way to cut cell-phone radiation is to avoid use in cars and metal-framed buildings; cell phones increase power substantially to improve signal levels in these conditions, and your head suffers.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1006681


Nononono, it al depends on the hertzian waves. A normal 3G phone exposes like 213 hertz pr. second - bluetooth is like 1200 hertz and fuckz up ur whole body.

[link to bevolution.dk]
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 658567


And a normal brain should never be over 13 hertz pr. second. That is why we see stress (electro-stress) and burn-out-syndrome world wide atm.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 658567


Is this for real? Because I am on my cell for work several hours a day have been for the last 19 months. I can't sleep I am always in a bad mood like feeling depressed and have the worst case of burn out I have ever felt. I am stressed to the max and have never been like this before!

Yes, its for real. Some of us have known about this for years, yet people look at you like your crazy when you tell them, "Hey you know cell phone's give you brain cancer." When you sign a cell phone contract, it has in small print, USER SHOULD KEEP PHONE 6" Away from the body. Try using speaker phone for a month or 2 and see if you feel any better. I Bet you will..

Yes, it is for real. You may be more sensitive than your cowokers - which is not a bad thing since it may force you to change what you do. There are many scientists who have been publishing the real effects of these devices AND EVEN WORSE the cellphone masts. These scientists and doctors are then attacked by the enormous cellphone industry.

The truth is just now slowly seeping into the mainstream.

Would you ask the Zetas if they would care to comment on the dangers of cell phone use? There are so many conflicting reports: Some say cell phone causes brain tumors, or brain cooking, or similar stuff; and of course the cell phone industry says: There is no problem with cell phone radiation. Which is it?

Of course there are dangers from putting electronics close to the brain. People living under high-tension wires get cancer at a higher rate than those living elsewhere. Microwaves cook flesh as well as food, so one should not hug the microwave just in case it is leaking. The truth about cell phone usage is somewhere in between the doom sayers and the industry spokespersons. Use cell phones in moderation, don't live on them just because they are so portable and constant chatting is a comfort. Break the umbilical cord, or do your business in the office or via email.

Not surprised,everything causes cancer.I read a study once that people in Italy have higher rates of esophageal cancer due to them eating pizza!
I think we have all these wonderful cancers due to all the new technology and chemicals,pesticides.I think female hormonal cancers such as breast and ovarian are caused by the hormones in all of our food,that is why young girls are going through puberty much earlier than before.We ingest all those hormones and they wreak havoc on our body.
I'd seriously love to be a menonite.No cell phones or computers,grow your own food etc.Nothing we pay for is safe any more.
 Quoting: shannon1979 1382770



sounds like a ridiculous study, since the pizza in Italy doesn't even resemble the pizza here in America. America originated the typical pizza that everyone associates with pizza.

 Quoting: TheShoveler


This^^ ....or your wired headset - works just as well.

In fact, I had started to develop a sore on the left side of my head (right next to the ear that I typically hold the cell to, which I'm on quite a bit). The sore wouldn't go away either, no matter what I tried to do to treat it (which was pretty much everything). It lasted pretty much a full year from first discovery.

Well, after switching to my headset for all calls, this sore healed completely in about two weeks.

That should tell you something, huh?

Our fucking kids are fucking spoiled.

Parents are in now way in any shape to take the cell phones away from their teenage daughters without the misery of shit that will be heaped upon them.

They will let their kids get cancer then pay to fix the cancer and give em cell phones again.


Its been said that Cell Phones are killing the bees as well.

Do you really think people will stop using cell phones when all the bees die and we start to die in 4 years?

No...they will use their cell phones to blog their fucking starvation.




I hate my goddamn cell phone. I hate cell phones period. You can't even take somebody fishing without them stopping in the middle of the goddamn day to check email, text messages and internet.

I hope cell phones really do cause cancer and kill the bees. Humans as a species are fucking stupid. I'm stupid.

We need to put this shit down and get back to reality and take a goddamn close look at our priorities in society.

We pay sports stars 60 million dollars to run around with a ball. We paid 105 million in three days to watch Hangover II.

Yet we have starving and homeless in our own cities that are bankrupt in a country that is bankrupt itself. Our teachers are getting fired and our students are going to school with children that can't even speak English and have not had their shots and are being packed in like sardines because we can't afford new schools and have no budgets.


Yeah....but we will spend $29-$200 a month for fucking cell phone service.

What has happened to us as a society where we have to have these fucking devices that isolate us from other humans and cause us to spend money on something so damn selfish that we neglect the very things in life that should be more important.


We as a species are a destructive, selfish, and wanting.

Frankly this country disgusts me.
