Re: [WARNING] Nomophobics Beware A Complete List of Other Things As Cancer-y As Cellp

The PC you are sitting on and watching these has all of these too.

Carbon Black, Diesel fuel, Dry cleaning:shock:, etc etc in the list. Some of those are generic drugs too. We are doomed.

The article's moral, if you trying to avoid cell phone then in order to maintain it's effectiveness you gotta avoid the above list. Which in fact is impossible. So, better stay with life as it is instead of being foolish enough falling for the media's claim.

Re: [WARNING] Nomophobics Beware A Complete List of Other Things As Cancer-y As Cellp

Anything in excess it bad. However coming to a more real life situation I have seen myself and my friends complain of ear ache on the side of cell phone usage which is a non cancer related issue. Also heating up of the phone or the contact region of the ear and mild to moderate deafness is a relatively common but rarely complained about complication.
