Re: no risk?
said by ecsd :The vast majority of cell phones use the 800mhz/850mhz/1900mhz bands. I am not aware of any provider in the states that has an active system using the 2.4GHz band. T-Mobile and other various carriers plan on using the 2100mhz band for 3g applications. But, that's about as close as there is.
One of the wifi bands (2.4GHz) is the same band as used by cellphones.
When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

2. CELL PHONES: FIVE YEARS LATER THEY STILL DON'T CAUSE CANCER.
A study in the current issue of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute found no increased cancer risk from cell phone use over a 20 year period. This is an update of a Danish study in JNCI five years ago. The Danes keep good records. By just going to the computer they could compare cell phone use with the National Cancer Registry. I was invited to write an editorial in the same issue, JNCI, Vol 93, p.166 (Feb 7, 2001). I noted that cancer agents act by breaking chemical bonds, creating mutant strands of DNA. Microwave photons, however, aren't energetic enough to break a bond. Predictably, fear mongers said there must be an induction period. Still waiting. In 1993, a man whose wife died of brain cancer was a guest on Larry King Live. Her cancer, he said, was caused by a cell phone. The evidence? "She held it against her head and talked on it all the time."
