Radiation from Cell Phones Can “Possibly” Cause Cancer.

I know these stories keep cropping up but a new report says that radiation from cell phones can possibly cause cancer, according to the World Health Organization. The agency now lists mobile phone use in the same “carcinogenic hazard” category as lead, engine exhaust and chloroform.

More can be found here over at CNN interesting points that are mentioned in the manuals of some leading phones (RTFM) :-

The Apple iPhone 4 safety manual says users’ radiation exposure should not exceed FCC guidelines: “When using iPhone near your body for voice calls or for wireless data transmission over a cellular network, keep iPhone at least 15 millimeters (5/8 inch) away from the body.”

BlackBerry Bold advises users to “keep the BlackBerry device at least 0.98 inch (25 millimeters) from your body when the BlackBerry device is transmitting.”

Looks like a boom time for bluetooth and hands free devices if this story grows ;
