It's finally coming out.. Mobile Phone radiation IS dangerous.

along with any form of EM radiation... and it's why the WiFi is now turned off in our house with 7up jnr now here. I even keep the 3G on my phone turned off when I don't need it to minimize the EMR coming out of it.
Anyway forgive the DM link:

Don't believe what you read in the papers.
They don't even mention sample sizes, ages, usage etc...

*yawn*  the doomsbury brigade is out in force again.  we live in a whopping great magnetic field.  there are massive electrical storms every day all over earth courtesy of ma nature.  some piddling wee wifi signal is ineffectual in the harming stakes.

Study done by the National Academy of sceinces Ukraine. Wasn't that where Chernobyl was located. Hope they can separate out the background radiation.  Huh

Re: It's finally coming out.. Mobile Phone radiation IS dangerous.

I think the first "sub" headline says it all really.....
Quote

Radiation from wireless devices such as phones and tablets could be linked to a number of health risks, a new review of studies has claimed


Note... the words    "could" and the final word  "claimed"........
I "could" be a millioniare........ it has been "claimed"......... but I`m not.....

Radiation from mobile phones is the least of my problems. This has been known about for years

When I worked at Sellafield it was known that one international flight exceeded the permitted annual dose at work.
Where are you going for your holidays this year?  Huh

Funny you mention that Peter, yesterday the DM were also running a story that the government has ordered an urgent inquiry into the radiation on commercial flights so they're taking it pretty seriously it would appear.

It's because you don't have 6 miles of atmosphere to protect you from various cosmic rays.
