    From Martin Weatherall:

    The attached article (see url) should be read by anyone who uses a cell phone.
    It is very informative and well worth the time it takes to read.



    Hidden Dangers of Cell Phone Radiation

    By Sue Kovach
    Every day, we”ôre swimming in a sea of electromagnetic radiation (EMR) produced by electrical appliances, power lines, wiring in buildings, and a slew of other technologies that are part of modern life. From the dishwasher and microwave oven in the kitchen and the clock radio next to your bed, to the cellular phone you hold to your ear””sometimes for hours each day””exposure to EMR is growing and becoming a serious health threat.
    But there”ôs a huge public health crisis looming from one particular threat: EMR from cellular phones””both the radiation from the handsets and from the tower-based antennas carrying the signals””which studies have linked to development of brain tumors, genetic damage, and other exposure-related conditions.1-9 Yet the government and a well-funded cell phone industry media machine continue to mislead the unwary public about the dangers of a product used by billions of people. Most recently, a Danish epidemiological study announced to great fanfare the inaccurate conclusion that cell phone use is completely safe.10
    George Carlo, PhD, JD, is an epidemiologist and medical scientist who, from 1993 to 1999, headed the first telecommunications industry-backed studies into the dangers of cell phone use. That program remains the largest in the history of the issue. But he ran afoul of the very industry that hired him when his work revealed preventable health hazards associated with cell phone use.
    In this article, we look at why cell phones are dangerous; Dr. Carlo”ôs years-long battle to bring the truth about cell phone dangers to the public; the industry”ôs campaign to discredit him and other scientists in the field; and what you can do to protect yourself now.
