I think more studies need to be done, but of course, there is little incentive for cell phone companies to study the danger of cell phones. For now, I do believe it is a concern, if only for the fact that there is a lack of comprehensive studies. - thorie (twitter) 0

There's radiation everywhere. The sun's UV rays. The FM and AM radio signals. Satellites. Cell phone towers. Gamma rays. Alpha rays. We're bombarded by radiation. I don't think the radiation from a cell phone is healthy BUT it's not really a concern. - jennyhooah (twitter) vote up image vote down image 0
