As much as I like ... As much as I like my cell phone, I can't help but think this is an issue. I don't feel any different when expose to my phone's radiation so i'm not sensitive to it in the least, but i don't doubt that there are some who are.
If there is evidence that the radiation causes harm, apart from the those who are super sensitive to it, I doubt that the industry will admit to it simply because of how lucrative the mobile market has become. Instead they will play the semantics game as mentioned in the article "treating the ear as an extremity", really? I mean, how far is your ear from your head, or brain for that matter.
They will say that "X" amount of watts is hazardous but "x" amount is safe, but is "x" amount really safe if you're going to be subjected to it for the rest of life since the cell phone is not going away anytime soon?
Like I said, I'm all geeked out myself with gadgets, and have been using a cell phone for about 20 years, but I can't help but think that we're sleeping with the enemy on this one. At the end of the day the people get what the people wants. They want a solid connection and that comes with a price and when the Galaxy S4 & iPhone6 hit the shelves radiation exposure will be the least researched spec that people look for.

said by Juggernaut:I wasn't aware they made a wired version of Bluetooth
I generally use a BT headset while on my cell. It mitigates a lot of the concerns and risks
said by jap:LOL, I was just about to post what you both said. Many people are like I don't put the phone to my head because of RF poisoning (if there is such a thing) and then they go on to say they use a wireless Bluetooth headset. I just shake my head and keep walking, lol. That's like saying I hate smokers and I don't smoke myself, but every person in my house does. It negates the original purpose schmucks! LOL!
So you're simultaneously roasting your nuts (handset) and bluetoothing your brain?
