We've all heard that cell phone waves can be harmful to the body, but some great news for mobile addicts was made public today; it turns out, cell phones may not be cancerous after all.
The finding comes from an Australian study dedicated to debunking popular myths, including if drinking coffee, getting breast implants, using deodorant or consuming fluoride causes cancer. Apparently, none have a correlation to cancer. Smoking, booze and too much sun, however, do up your risk factor.
I don't know if I buy this; cell phones haven't been around long enough to study the long terms effects. How do you explain that strange sound the radio makes right before a cell phone rings? If the waves are strong enough to affect that from across the room, they must do something to us, no?
I don't know about this finding... I suggest waiting until the long term studies come out to make official claims.
