    Mobile phone use may be more dangerous than smoking

    A comprehensive review study conducted by Dr. Vini G. Khurana and published on his website brain-surgery.us on March 20 shows convincing evidence that use of mobile phone increases risk of brain tumors and that mobile phones may be more dangerous than asbestos and smoking.

    Oh well . . . I'll still have to call people on my cell phone to tell them I am dying from a massive brain tumor.

    Re: Mobile phone use may be more dangerous than smoking

    So if I stop using a cellphone can I take up smoking again? Perhaps get my job back in the asbestos factory?

    Re: Mobile phone use may be more dangerous than smoking

    A couple months ago, I sat on an airplane next to a guy who works on eliminating stray voltages on dairy farms. Many of the large farms are huge consumers of power, and the modern ones use a lot of devices that convert the AC line voltage into DC voltage. Whenever this is done, stray voltage and harmonics are created in the power lines. These stray voltages then find whatever ground source is available. This translates into agitated dairy cows that do not produce milk, which is a problem. But they have also discovered that these stray voltages effect the people living on the farms as well. Creating various ailments from cancer to Parkinsons.
    He also had results from studies done regarding harmful effect Cell phones and any wireless technology. We are essentially cooking ourselves in low power microwave ovens that we call home.
    It will be interesting to see what happens with all of this as we continue to move toward technologies that rely entirely on DC voltage. (Compact florescent/LED lighting)

    So instead of calling, work on getting arthritis and text!

    I thought all this was debunked about 5 years ago?

    The author reviews the debunking studies that are most frequently referenced, and faults those studies for various cited reasons.

    Re: Mobile phone use may be more dangerous than smoking

    I have only personally been using a cell phone on a regular basis for 10 years, but my dad on the other hand has had one since 1987, no sign of a brain tumor yet there.
    Maybe he needs to get in on this study.

    Re: Mobile phone use may be more dangerous than smoking

    I'm pretty sure at some point in my life something will kill me. I also have a feeling that when I'm dead I won't really care what it was that killed me. Bring it on phone - let's see what ya got!

    What I DO know was debunked was you can talk on the cell phone all you want while pumping your gas and not worry about it blowing up (Mythbusters busted that one)...

    Re: Mobile phone use may be more dangerous than smoking

    I wonder how many days of my life I removed when I was in college going to a bar, talking on a cell phone, drinking beer, smoking a cigarette, and going home with a scank all within a couple of hours?

    Now ask me if I care.

    We better tax the **** out of cell phones. And also make them illegal in bars and other confined spaces. I have the right to soak in electromagnetic radiation free air!!

    It's probably more like years, but still.
