cordless phones in the house anyone?

Those have frequencies too. I'm thinking as long as no one dies from cellular use (no counting idiots that drive and talk), then it's a non issue. I'm thinking fear sells news.

I think the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) for cordless phones (0.01 and 0.05 W/kg) is generally much lower than cell phones (0.171 to 1.370 W/Kg). Partly because cell phones transmit over a much greater distance and partly because they contain a lot more electronics.

People have this impression that only cell towers are capable of any real radiation but you forget your cell phone must transmit with enough power to reach that same tower in the other direction and you store it a few inches from your junk and occasionally hold it against your temple.
