Blast From the Past: Cell Phones and Brain Cancer

This was published in early 2007 or 2006 (I moved to WordPress in Nov 2007).  Way back then, the cell phone was used mostly for talking and people were walking around with their cell phones plastered to their ear.  

textingTimes have changed:  Texting (and other Smartphone features) have made all the difference.

Enjoy.

Cell Phone and Brain Cancer Theory

My wife suggested I document this theory I have had for quite some time. But first, let me give you a very brief background.

When I was in graduate school at the University of Kansas, one of my research interests was on the effects of microwave radiation on the human body. I never got to finish that research since I accepted a research assistant position which paid me for doing other research (yeah…I caved in for money!).

But from the little bit I did on the effects, I came out with a VERY healthy respect for what electromagnetic radiation can do to the human body, either outwardly apparent or not at all apparent.

The theory I am documenting (and I have no proof that this will happen and, in fact, have seen reports / studies that say it will not happen. I do not believe those studies by the way):

20 to 25 years from now I suspect / fear that there will be a dramatic increase in brain cancer due to cell phone abuse.

There, I documented it!

Word of caution: limit your use.
