Cancer link to Cell Phones: Update

Just thought I would update readers following the recent post The "Mark" of the Beast: Cancer link to Cell Phones before my next proper blog article. An important piece on this subject has recently appeared on news site WND:

While much has been made about the health effects of smart meters, there is another device, even more widely used, that could be every bit as dangerous as what has been ascribed to the utility device.
That device is your mobile phone.
Cell phones have been so woven into the fabric of life that there is even a phobia associated with them. “Nomophobia” — a contraction of “no more phone” — is the fear of being without any cell phone contact. People, especially young people, have become so dependent on mobile devices that, for some, having a dead phone, or being outside of a coverage area, can lead to increased levels of stress and feelings of isolation.
Cell phones are everywhere. It has become standard in conferences, libraries and even churches to remind people to silence or turn off their devices so as not to disturb others.
According to a study published in the Indian Journal of Community Medicine, 73 percent of students keep their phones turned on at all times. Some 56 percent of students keep them either in the pocket of a shirt or jeans, close to their body so that they can constantly feel them.
In the U.K., another study indicated 13 million Britons fear being out of cell phone contact and have feelings of anxiety when they lose touch. More than 50 percent of the respondents say they never turn their phones off.
According to a study by the Center for Disease Control, the CDC, in the first six months of 2011, over 30 percent of households did not have a landline telephone but did have at least one wireless telephone, and that percentage is steadily increasing.
According to a recent Pew Research study, more than 200 million Americans own mobile phones, with nearly half of them being smartphones. That represents a 35-percent increase in a single year. As in India and the U.K., cell phones in the U.S. are rarely turned off.
Therein rests the problem.
Several studies point to the conclusion that cell phones and cordless devices can have the same adverse effects on health as smart meters.
