Anyone who knows anything about energy knows that the belief that cell phones can cause cancer is nonsense and yet no one in the know has ever come out and said, "You people are idiots." That is until now.
In an effort to dismiss reports like the Time Magazine report that claimed, "a growing band of scientists are skeptical, suggesting that the evidence that does exist is enough to raise a warning for consumers—before mass harm is done," a group of physicists wrote about the hard and firm reasons why cell phones could never cause cancer.
For more information about the report, hit the break.
Here's what the report had to say.
Cell phones cannot cause cancer, because they do not emit enough energy to break the molecular bonds inside cells. Some forms of electromagnetic radiation, such as x-rays, gamma rays and ultraviolet (UV) radiation, are energetic enough to break the bonds in key molecules such as DNA and thereby generate mutations that lead to cancer. Electromagnetic radiation in the form of infrared light, microwaves, television and radio signals, and AC power is too weak to break those bonds, so we don’t worry about radios, televisions, microwave ovens and power outlets causing cancer.
So, there you have it. Stop whining now about how you have to use a headset because you don't want brain cancer. The only way you're getting it is from being stupid.
