I have been trying not to use my cell phone since learning about all the horrible health effects. I didn't realize my cordless phone and wireless printer were problems too. No wonder I have insomnia.

Too bad so many people have no scientific knowledge and make judgments without any basis in fact. The radiation from those objects are too low to affect the brain. I notice that microwave ovens weren't mentioned or TV sets - both of which emit low level radiation.

Since radiation of any sort decreases as the square of the distance from the source, if you're worried about its affects, simply move a few inches or feet away from the emitter. And read some physics which explains the how wavelengths propagate.

If you want to be so scientific, then be accurate. The radiation from
cellphones can and does have an effect on the brain. It has been
measured that brain tissue can be heated up. The question as to
whether it has a long term or injurious affect has not been proven
either way, so why don't you just allow people to think what they
want until there is actual evidence either way. I use a cellphone
so I think there is negligible danger from them, but I could be wrong
or I could also just be lucky.

The constant insults and nastiness over these issues on message
boards is not how people used to interact in real life, and it is
starting to be. There is no need to get all insulting or superior.
Even if someone is wrong, or if you are wrong it's not the end of
the world.
