It's now official: Everything that the Federal Communications Commission has ever told us about the safety of cellphones is almost certainly wrong. When the director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse recently reported that simply holding a turned-on cellphone next to the ear for 50 minutes caused significant changes to brain chemistry, many stalwarts in the scientific community were stunned. After all, cellphones were not even tested for safety before being introduced, because it was thought that they had to be safe. Not anymore.

Why leave out talking about the killing infrastructure?

How is it that only half a story about obvious danger is told by a health professional? Advocacy for ALARA does nothing in the interim to stop the deaths & maiming from existing infrastructure, at the ready to handle your anytime anywhere headset calls. Further, using a headset is not really protective either. So a brain is shown to light up with glucose uptake when a device is pressed to it. Will all-day texters or several-hour-long headsetters not suffer, just differently? To those of us who never fell for latter-day wireless insanity, Davis' prescriptions are both lame and disingenuous. Better to heed, e.g., Eger: see most recent study at http://www.scribd.com/doc/38565331/Specific-Health-Symptoms-and-Cell-Phone-Radiation-in-Selbitz-Bavaria-Germany--Evidence-of-a-Dose-Response-Relationship .
It's all dangerous. Period. What sense taking advice on an addiction from an apparent addict?
Have a look at the odious behaviour behind the pushers of mass cell telephony, e.g. from this online book, http://www.scribd.com/doc/21783803/Cellular-Telephone-Russian-Roulette , or on the same behind establishment of "safety" guidelines, see another online book, http://international-emf-alliance.org/images/pdf/The_Procrustean_Approach.pdf . There is a mountain of evidence that is being kept from you, which Davis seems in no hurry to share either.
