Effect of cell phones on brain could matter

According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, in healthy participants and compared with no exposure, 50-minute cell phone exposure was associated with increased brain glucose metabolism in the region closest to the antenna. This finding is of unknown clinical significance.

Others say: "Given that cell frequencies are approaching those of microwaves, think cooking, maybe the time has come to revisit this question. Even police radar speed trap operators have allegedly suffered health damage. Old Army radio operators who used C52 HF transmitters knew all about the effects of RF - most operators had burned fingers occasioned whilst they tuned the set to the antenna. The first people knew of the 'burning' was the smell of burned tissue rather than pain. Could it be the same all over again?"

IMO: I do not use a cell phone when I can avoid it, which is often. RF is certainly often risky.
