    No, it will be wireless routers. But they are dangerous right now.

    And I believe the carcinogenic effect of phones is from microwave radiation heating brain tissue, but I could be wrong there.
    UV radiation is ionizing, although not as strongly as x-rays or gamma rays. Visible light is somewhat ionizing IIRC. Ionizing means that the photons have enough energy to kick an electron off an atom, which can break up molecules. Microwaves just shake the atoms and heat them up a tiny bit. There's no actual damage.

    Don't worry. I'm sure these claims will be back in 5 or 6 years anyway.

    Re: Are Cell Phones Carcinogenic?

    I don't know about cancer, but I get bad headaches if I have a cell phone to my ear for a long time. For long conversations I switch to speaker phone. Cell phones make my head feel hot on the side I'm using it, and my ear gets red. Land lines never do this to me.

    Yes but the problem is theres too many damn people addicted to cellphones that have them in their ear or in their hand 24/7 I read an article by a scientist a few years ago...that said many studies have shown cellphones to be harmful and they were either bought or squashed or attacked...he said in the future cellphones will have harmed many people before the truth is allowed to get out...theres too much damn money in it....I BELIEVED IT...and I still do

    Well, no offense or anything, but he's wrong, and so are you. It's physically impossible for cell phone radiation to harm people, in the same way that it's physically impossible for a thrown baseball to knock over a skyscraper. There's just not enough energy.
