    Are Cell Phones Carcinogenic?

    What do you think, are Cell Phones carcinogenic or not, please vote and explain your choice. It would be good if you share some additional information or probably important links because almost everywhere in the world the amount of brain cancers is increasing since the last twenty years.

    Additional question:

    Should the prices for Mobil calls fall down because of cancer risk?

    I don't know but I guess they are. It's the big guys (the corps that is) again.
    DDT was also considered "safe" at the time.

    Would "cordless phones" used at most homes possibly cause cancer?

    Most of the studies on cell phones and cancer risk have been inconclusive.

    Re: Are Cell Phones Carcinogenic?

    I got my first cell phone in 1998, when they were getting small enough to fit in your pocket easily. When I used it for long conversations, over an hour, I got heat as well as a painful sensation on the side of my head n the exact vicinity where I was using it. At first I thought maybe I was pressing it against my ear too hard maybe, but this wasn't it either. Since 1998, I've limited my phone call length and used ear buds. At the time, I knew nothing about the cancer claims, but when I found out there were claims, avoid it's use even more. To this day, the same sensation occurs. I don't know if it causes cancer, I'm not cancer expert. Although, I've heard it is radiation that is emitted and it's the type similar to what we use for microwaves. I've heard from experts before that your brain is being essentially cooked. I know we have a crooked government that obviously is letting the country slide into the ****hole, puts it's people in harm's, so why not? I believe the test mostly likely proves cancer is being caused and big business doesn't want to take the hit, much like the tobacco companions being able to got away with murder for so long.

    The toxicity of cell phones is negligible.
    DDT is safe to use.
    Guess what, there is a level of toxicity to everything, many things we use everyday become carcinogens in higher dosages or higher amounts of exposure.

    Lesson from this, don't smoke cell phones their bad for your health.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    If you don't want brain cancer, use a head set, this is easily prevented if they do turn out to be carcinogenic, I don't see the big deal.

    I think not. And so do other people and health organizations.

    Whether you get a brain cancer or an ass cancer, it is still a cancer.

    if they do cause brain cancer because you hold them right next to your ear/brain my question is what about carrying them on your hip all day every day will that cause pelvic cancer?
