    This is ridiculous pseudoscience.

    I can't. This is important.

    If San Franciscans don't have the courage to stand up to the Negative Energies lobby, then they deserve what they get. But hey, at least you guys don't have to worry about imaginary brain tumors any more.

    It's the government's job to protect us from cell phone radiation, but not the government's job to protect us from oil spills?

    That follows! … No … no, it doesn't.

    Re: San Francisco set to pass cell phone radiation law

    Honestly I think this law is foolish and unnecessary. Should we put a warning label on the sun, which we know can cause cancer? Cell phone radiation does not cause cancer and many studies have shown this. Cancer is usually caused by mutations in a single cell that result in mass proliferation. Mutations can be caused by many things and just happen randomly. However, our cells have a mechanism that aims to fix mutations when they happen. It all occurs all the time and even the most innocent things (like sunlight) can cause mutations in our DNA, however our body can fix them and does fix them.

    I think someone in San Francisco took the cell phone egg cooking and popcorn youtube video's to heart without checking it was a hoax.

    Radio waves are physically incapable of causing the sort of damage that gamma and x-rays do. They don't interact with your body that way. Heat is the only effect they could have on you, so unless you're exposed to a level that literaly cooks you, you'll be fine.

    Isn't there an arguement to be made however, that though high frequency radio waves at the power levels in cell phones do not cause enough heat or excite particles enough to cause heat to cook - they do generate more radiation at very low levels and that low level radiation over a long period of time could... maybe ... cause some ill effects?

    Radio waves are not a form of ionizing radiation. They don't cause any other effects.
