Sounded that way to me,,,, hehehe. Thats just nutz!!!. Glad I have OnStar and the wife faithfully uses an ear bud, I always knew it was dicey when leaving it to my head for like 2o minutes and the seat starts rolling off my sideburns. Who are you going to believe? Your own eyes or some research tainted by money, greed, cellular companies/makers, and ya....Politicians.

I can tell you FOR A FACT that cell phones CAN'T hurt you. I work with comm systems everyday, all of which radiate A LOT more energy than a cell phone. With one of them it would take at least a week straight in the path of signal to feel it. This with something that only emmits 316mW, and a cell phone isn't even a mW

Yea I sit with a wireless router (not sure about the mW but I know its more than my cell phone) less than a foot away from me. I'm on my computer anywhere from 5-10 hours a day and don't have any problems.

If your wifi router is in stock settings it'* only pushing out 51mW per FCC regulations. That'* about equal to a normal cell phone.

I'm sorry, last night I was wrong about the amount of power a cell phone puts out. Its about 50-60 mW. Still, unable to hurt you.

Let'* see...I've been using 5 to 100w UHF/VHF portable radios since 16. Used the first generation of mobile phones (bricks) and all succeeding varieties since. Used hand held speed radar for 10+ years. Nothing on me has popped yet.....that I can tell.
