    I believe some of the research which says that it can cause health problems. Cell phones operate on low frequency microwaves and their full effects are not yet known.
    Considering there are lots of constant radio-frequency waves and other forms of radiation or waves floating throughout the air 24/7, I'd say cell phones are the least of the problem.

    Radio waves are ever present in our universe, along with background radiation and cosmic rays. Low frequency microwaves are not among them.

    The question is, what are they going to do about it? It's not like everyone will stop using them.

    Yeah but we're talking about the HOW and WHY they die.

    I searched through that article and found no mention of Al Gore.
