Add cell phone radiation to the ever growing paranoias on our list.
Yesterday the Word Health Organization issued a warning heard around the world, saying “Heavy use of cell phones MIGHT cause brain cancer.”
Uuuuuuuts… de veras que cuando no es Juana, es Chana.
Do we need another reason to get freaked out by everyday life? To think that 30 minutes a day on the cell phone could potentially expose us to harmful radiation is not something we want to consider as we’re chatting away on our mobiles.
Heard an interesting conversation on “To The Point” with Warren Olney on kcrw.com today. It was interesting to hear the skeptics versus the doctors versus the middle of the road scientists. Basically the middle of the road people say nothing is proven yet, but we’ve only had cell phone technology for less than 20 years, and it’s too soon to come to any conclusions. But imagine 5 billion people use cell phones every day and if any of these warning were true, we’d have to change our phone habits, which at this point is very unlikely.
I wonder if they’re doing more research on the subject? In the meantime I think I’m going to use my speakerphone much more often and think about getting a landline, again. El miedo no anda en burro señores.
