Cellphone Use Tied to Brain Changes - NYTimes.com

Researchers from the National Institutes of Health have found that less than an hour of cellphone use can speed up brain activity in the area closest to the phone antenna, raising new questions about the health effects of low levels of radiation emitted from cellphones.


2nd hand radiation anyone? I wonder how long it's going to take before talking or texting on a cell phone in public is banned. If studies with even a low relative risk begin to accumulate, politicians will have to ban it in order to remain consistent with all of the other activities that they so love to ban. Of course, we smokers warned of the slippery slope long ago and no one listened to us.
