Cellphone causes cancer, because of the radiation of the phone. 1. Don't put your phone above you when you are going to sleep. 2. Don't put your phone near in the computer when you are doing something in your computer. The radiation is "DOUBLED". 3. It's better to turn off your phone when you don't use it. Just use your landline phone your at home. 4. Last but not the list, DON'T USE CELLPHONE!

I really doubt that everyone is going to hang up their cellphones. It's true that cells emit radiofrequency energy, but the risk is negligible. Best to read the facts from the horse's mouth. National Cancer Institute: http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/factsheet/Risk/cellphones American Cancer Society: http://www.cancer.org/Cancer/CancerCauses/OtherCarcinogens/AtHome/cellular-phones There are a lot of appliances we use daily that emit low radiation. Like with my microwave, I'm just gonna risk it.

Everyone is going to die some day. Why freak out over the poor cellphone? Chill mate. Cellphones are not the only things killing people in the world. And if you consider statistics, you'll see that far more people die of cancer caused due to n number of factors other than cellphone radiation. I sleep with my cellphone next to my pillow as I use my cellphone as a alarm clock!

Yeah, but if you want to die fast it's your fault.

I don't sleep with my cellphone, nor do I carry it in my pocket. It stays on the laptop table next to my laptop, so I can get it easier when I get a call. I can't give up my cell phone, as I don't have a landline, and without it, I would be lost and couldn't communicate with my family, as it is the easiest and best way to do so. I think this whole thing about cell phones has been blown out of proportion, as no one really knows as you get it from both sides of the spectrum. If there were cancer dangers, believe me, there wouldn't be as many cell phone users as there are. I just think it is a scare tactic, to convince people not to use them, but I don't thing the danger is as bad as led to believe. The manufacturers wouldn't make cell phones with dangers, as they just wouldn't get anyone to buy them. I, for one, won't stop buying them either. Take care, and have a very good day.
